Nuclear Technology for Africa

Despite its shortcomings, the African continent is growing very fast. And along with that growth comes a challenge to meet the increasing demands for energy. A tough issue for a continent that lacks water.

To address this challenge, a number of African countries have decided to produce nuclear energy in the next few years. A decision that the majority of the continent’s nation would likely follow suit by 2030. This week we are discussing African countries’ quest to develop nuclear energy.

Many say acquiring the technology can be challenging. Western countries are not very eager to give the know-how to the continent.

And turning to other options, like Russia, has its own geopolitical challenges. On the second part of the program, we will be discussing the Nigerian government’s decision to use local languages, and not English, as a language of instruction in primary schools.
