    You can’t make this stuff up. Our electricity doesn’t work again and we have to close our major point of entry during the peak tourism period.
    And the guy responsible for our poor electricity service for the past decade now wants us to vote for him to help run our country?

    Please vote.

    Can any government fix this power issue? I’m the dark as I type. We are too small and do not have a large population that puts the kind of heavy demand on power consumption that we need to have regular power outages. So many excuses as to why power failed. This need to be a priority.
