NAIROBI, Kenya, May 13, 2005 (PANA) -- The Vice-Chairman of the Sudan Peoples Liberation Movement (SPLM), Dr Riek Machar has invited investors to partner with the Sudanese authorities in building of a 700- megawatt power project along the River Nile.

Machar said the Southern Sudan region, with over seven million population, requires hydroelectric power and is capable of supplying African countries with affordable energy while its plan to build a rail project would boost connectivity.

"We are processing oil, we want to make cheap oil for Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, if we can make electricity cheap. we would lower the cost of energy in this region," Machar told investors here Thursday at a two-day reconstruction workshop for war-ravaged South Sudan.
