Background
Madagascar, a large Indian Ocean island famous for its wildlife and its minerals, has struggled hard to revive its economy since a coup in 2009 that plunged the nation into prolonged crisis.

The island country was undergoing severe electricity failures as only 15 percent of the island is on the electricity grid. Amidst the turmoil, Roger Kolo's government was not able to handle the electricity failures.

Moreover, Madagascar Energy Minister Richard Fihenena was fired in November 2014 for his inability to solve the problem.
