A very talented man who needs encouragement is in the limelight after constructing a mini Hydroelectric power plant that generates electricity. The 32-year-old man identified as Augustine Otuokwa Ogar, a graduate of Electronic and Computer Technology, reportedly constructed a 200 Mega Watts mini Hydroelectric power plant that generates electricity for the plant site and its surrounding Mgbaeshuo village of Wula Community, Eastern Boki, Boki LGA, Cross River State.

He reportedly constructed the Hydroelectric Plant with locally selected handpicked materials and equipment.

According to reports, He converts the kinetic energy of a flowing stream water into electric energy that is now used in homes and business areas of this village.

Generated on a small scale with ‘run-off’ installation of a naturally flowing stream water to turn and revolve its turbine. The Water rushes past the turbine, hitting its blades and causing it to spin and rotate, converting the water’s kinetic energy into mechanical energy, the water then finally flows out of the stream and continues its journey down stream

.”When the turbine spins so does the electromagnetic field convert this mechanical energy into electric energy”. “The flow rate of the stream water is low, because its not a dam or water fall, this is a small stream with low flowing water, Yet I was able to convert it to bring Pressure and fall like a Dam,” he said while showcasing his work.

EFF demands the sacking of South Africa’s finance minister Nene.

Published

South Africa’s political players are headed for a collision course over the fate of the finance minister, who the Treasury on Tuesday said is traveling to Indonesia for an International Monetary Fund (IMF) meeting.



Pressure has been piling on finance minister Nhlanhla Nene to resign, following his disclosure to the state-capture inquiry commission, that he had met the Gupta brothers between 2010 and 2013.

The Business Day on Monday reported that Nene had asked president Cyril Ramaphosa to relieve him of his duties as finance minister.

Ramaphosa’s office responded and said they were not aware of Nene’s request.

And on Tuesday, Treasury spokesman Jabulani Sikhakhane said the finance minister was expected to arrive in Indonesia on Wednesday.

Nene is also expected to read the mid-term budget later this month.

The news that Nene is continuing with his duties is likely to anger opposition supporters including the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), whose leader, Julius Malema on Monday asked Ramaphosa to sack Nene.

In a written letter to Ramaphosa, Malema argued that the country, whose economy is in recession, had very serious challenges that needed a credible finance minister to address them.

‘‘Public servants at all spheres and levels of government will have no obligation to responsibly manage state fiscal resources under a compromised minister of finance,’‘ Malema said.

He then added that that Nene can no longer inspire much needed confidence to revive the economy.

‘‘The Medium-Term Budget Policy Statement (MTBPS)‚ which is supposed to be a statement to build confidence amongst all important economic role players‚ cannot‚ and should not‚ be delivered by a minister who was part of the Gupta criminal syndicate.”

For the EFF, Nene’s position as finance minister is no longer tenable and they are determined to win what they are now calling a battle.

Malema had threatened on Sunday that streets protests might be organised to demand for the removal of Nene as finance minister.

The Gupta brothers are accused of using their friendship with former president Jacob Zuma to influence government decisions including unfairly winning state contrcats.

Both Zuma and the Guptas have denied any wrongdoing.
