This week people in the former soviet union of Ukraine are commemorating the chernobyl nuclear plant ‘disaster’ that occurred some decades ago,maybe 30 to be exact. The point is not to lay flowers on lives lost in that country,but to appropriately put that same mood in an African perspective. As a matter of fact the world learnt how nuclear plants could be devastating second from the japan nuclear bomb record breaking in made disaster. Europe,Asia,the Americans and Africa? The focus is Southern Africa as Malawi has uranium reserves,a raw material for these nuclear plants.
Honestly South Africa has the gold to do that,but is it ready for the risks if the wamzingu made a whole town into some future ghost town. That should be the concern if the country struggles to make sense of the Zumas and guptaz,what more another chernobyl in the rainball nation. The truth is no country will welcome such multitude of people,because We still are facing Zenophobia,hunger and some “civil war.” The message is the idea of generating from nuclear reactors is not South Africa,and it defeats Nelson Mandela’s ‘ubunthu concept ‘but that which the people believe to be the way to go. The solution to the energy crisis is coorperation of all southern African countries,otherwise uranium was better sold to the colonial thugs in Malawi,besause it has no use after all who needs to battle radiation for hundreds of years?not the motherland. Obama said ‘change is what we can believe in’ so let Africa learn from Europe on nuclear power plants.
