Monkey business sparks five-hour power cut
A baboon plunged a Zambian town into darkness after tampering with equipment at a hydroelectric power station.
The 108 megawatt power station in Livingstone, a hub for tourists visiting Victoria Falls, is close to a national park. Zesco Ltd, which owns the power station, said the baboon disturbed a high voltage transformer on Sunday, leaving about 40,000 customers without electricity for five hours. The baboon suffered an electric shock but survived.
