Are the contract referred to by Pres. John Magafuli and the PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) one and the same thing?
I believe they are. One reason is that on 14 February 2018 the Government signed a Memorandum of Agreement with Kibo in terms of which there were set out “clear … timelines for the conclusion of the PPA (Power Purchase Agreement)”. These timelines include 31 March 2018 as a target date for the signing of the PPA.
That's only eight days away, and John Magafuli said "soon" ...
Whether the target date is met or not, I believe that soon the bargain-basement price of Kibo (110c) will be a distant memory.
