    Rich? Did you say rich? How can you call them rich when you look at their home land? If I am a billionaire in dollars, my family and immediate community should reflect it. Between these three knuckle heads, they can fix the problems we’re experiencing in the energy/power sector of the country. They have the clout to call out the corrupt politicians who have run the country into the ground. Honestly…..they can’t call out anyone because their hands are not clean either.
