The richest neighborhoods receive about ten hours more electricity per day than the poorest areas.
Igor Espanhol's insight:

"That’s the premise established in a paper published late last month in Cambridge University’s African Studies Review journal. The researchers say the continent’s rolling blackouts ”disproportionately” affect the poor and that a mix of political connections, socioeconomic factors, and skewed infrastructural development shelter the wealthy from experiencing electricity outages. As such, the richest neighborhoods receive about ten hours more electricity per day than the poorest areas."
