The only thing worse than suffering severe burns would be to suffer severe burns in Africa. I can tell by looking at this photo that the man is in the world of pain and by the looks of it, he’s gonna be there for a while.
ZESCO (Zambia Electricity Supply Corporation Limited) is a state-owned power company producing about 80% of Zambia’s electricity. Should one take into an account power availability in Zambia, then ZASCO is also one of the most failed power companies in the world. Just one day before this incident occurred, Zambia’s main airport was without power for 8 hours, forcing the air traffic to redirect or hover above for long periods of time. Electricity just seems to be too damn complex for those people to handle.
Independently from the airport fiasco, three ZESCO employees were trying to switch on a breaker to restore power for Monze and Mazabuka after a day long blackout, but the breaker exploded in their faces, sending all three of them over to the world of pain with severe burns. Great job, Zambia.
