Burundi faces unprecedented energy crisis

For several weeks now, Burundi has been facing an un precedented energy crisis, which slowed down the country’s economic activities, a ccording to officials of the National Water and Electricity Production and Distr i bution Board (REGIDESO).

They blamed the situation on a combination of several situational and structural factors, including higher demand, the run-down state of equipment and drought.

According to them, REGIDESO technicians are busy revising two thermal power stat ions likely to provide a five-megawatt supplement by the end of October.
