    • @ flag beyond reproach. We should embark on projects that suit us and our pocket, not just because they are there. The average cost of a nuclear facility is $30 billion. Ethiopia is constructing a hydro facility for $6.0 billion, with capacity to carter for itself and export as well. Zambia has the largest water resources in southern Africa, and we are dreaming nuclear!!
