For years, the Venezuelan capital was kept at bay of electrical blackouts by orders of the comandante presidente himself.
In the first fifteen days of 2013 alone, there has been 55 reported blackouts in the city. This number has already surpassed all of those reported on 2012. CORPOELEC is investigating the possible causes but the “S” word has been brought once again as a possible excuse.
