Minister Mokaila nearly let the cat out of the bag last Thursday in Ramotswa where he addressed a kgotla meeting alongside President Ian Khama, but said he was reserving the good news for his scheduled national address this week.

He did, however, give a hint saying he will deliver some reassuring and inspiring news that will be in sharp contrast to the same sad story of prolonged power cuts and failure of the plant.The Morupule Power B, built partly with a multi billion Pula loan from the World Bank(US$ 1662.00million) and local banks, missed completion deadlines after it was initially expected to operate by 2011. It also missed its new October 2012 deadline.
