This would be the world's biggest power plant once completed. Cost: $80 billion.

It's a joint project by the governments of Angola, Botswana, DRC, Namibia and South Africa.

I wonder if Nigeria would capitalize on this, as it's got to affect us somehow. More power in Central Africa means a huge boost for Nigerian multinationals and businesses.

Nigeria was already offered a steak in the project, way back during the OBJ regime, they sounded as though they were interested at the time, in that the dam could easily make up for the shortage in the domestic supply. I guess they backed out of the deal.
