Professor

My view is that $3billion loan from the World Bank that will not give rural populations access to reliable and reasonably priced (i.e. affordable) electricity would be yet another example of World Bank ignoring the need for widespread and valued infrastructure development and rather focussing on enriching a minority of often corrupt and self-serving wealthy individuals. Until all people in Zambia and Zim have access to decent microcredit systems the World Bank should focus its efforts on that. Then ordinary citizens in these countries will start to demand more access to electricity and truly valuable development could occur. I suspect villages with no running water and clinics with no electricity need a network infrastructure before they need the generating capacity itself..
