Living Life Without Electricity

Following is a video about the people of northern Ghana being denied of electricity that was promised by their elected government over a decade ago. One of the people interviewed equate this as living in prison - darkness from 6pm and allowed out of the prison after 6am.

Children are also denied proper education - teachers come and go, not being able to stand living in the community and the children could not study at night, instead sleeping it through the darkness. Yet, they are happy while here I am fussing over which smartphone to buy. Damn it.
