Parts of Ghana have been experiencing severe power cuts recently, and this has been blamed on a most unlikely source: vultures.
This was revealed by the director of the Electric Company of Ghana, Tetteh Ankamah Okyne. Okyne was speaking at a meeting of the Public Utility Regulatory Commission, which had the ECG, as well as other power producers like VRA, Gridco and Asogli present.
The power producers had put the blame on the ECG, which then transferred the blame to nature.
“The power cut being witnessed in Accra and certain parts of the country is due to the activities of vultures and other birds and we are working hard to address the problem,” Mr. Okyne said.
The country, which once had near-constant power supply, has been experiencing severe power cuts over the past 4 years.
