This is not a joke but we are in serious trouble and it appears that nobody has a clue on how to resolve the power crisis or there is no political will to address this with long term goals. It is now almost 25 years since we started to experience "normal" power outages and we have lost billions of dollars through bogus contracts, lawsuits and decline of revenues which are due to a severe decline in production caused by power outages. The "best" we have done is to do patch work and strategies to power Tanzanian homes, offices and industries, but even this short term goal is clouded with an "Excellent" degree of corruption and inefficiency from the policy makers and the Government to ensure that the problem get fixed permanently and not through short term contracts or importation of 3 horsepower generators to light our houses, hospitals and schools. We do not need rocket science methods or superhuman brains to figure this out. We need for our Government to address this not through lavish speeches and tons of committees or task force, but to put its foot down and resolve the problem for good. We have abundance of alternatives to fix this problem, invest on building Steigler Gorge, privatise the energy sector by ending TANESCO monopoly as power producer (distributor), end and stay away from the short term goals and band aid fixtures that brought us IPTL, Richmond and Dowans and invest more into Green Energy. If Kenyans, Ugandans, Rwandese and Mozambique can do it, why not Tanzania? What is so hard to fix this? Can we put aside the partisan bickering and come up with a long term strategy and comprehensive plan to electrify Tanzania?
