Because our government guzzles so much cash that they couldn't pay for a fuel/coal/gas/whatever electricity supply 30 years ago, so we made the Mtera Dam (which in hindsight is good, what with all the green issues with electricity) (that sentence made no sense, I realise). The only problem with hydroelectric power is that when you live on the Equator, you kind off don't get too much rain
The other problem is that our Government is a huge cash-guzzler (we receive the MOST aid in Africa, we have diamonds, gold, uranium, bananas, tanzanites, and we're the second most popular tourist destination in Africa, yet we're also one of the most poor countries.
As a result, we get 'rationing' in the hot months (November to February) where the cut off electricity for 10 hours each day, at least, and random cuts throughout the rest of the year, and complete failure when it begins to rain. Which makes no sense, but still. That's how they work!
I was born while my parents were on holiday in Kenya
I was a little too early! Most people move out after they get married, usually because (my parents' generation) the girls married guys abroad, or, recently, they study abroad and get married there. That's just the 'regular' part of my family
We have tons more... I think the only countries in which we don't have relatives are the EU ones. I don't second cousin's uncle who's French, sadly
But Indian/African families tend to keep in touch with their most extended members, so that could contribute too!
