Venezuelans rage over prolonged blackout situation

One of the American continent countries, Venezuela, is currently undergoing a tumultuous crisis-rocked economy.

One major challenge the nation is traversing is from the power sector. For a number of days now, the country has been experiencing total blackout and that has left the citizens complaining.

The bereaved citizens of the South American country are left with no other means of cooking than leaving on gas stove.

Particularly in the country’s capital city, Caracas, the only thing that can be counted on around the clock at Gustavo Diaz’s home these days is the gas stove.

Reacting to the situation, Gustavo Diaz was without reservation as he was quoted as saying “The food in the fridge is spoiling. The microwave oven sits unused. The television is dark and the stereo system silent.

It’s sweaty and uncomfortable inside, thanks to government-imposed electricity blackouts meant to deal with chronic power shortages across the country.

Even getting running water is a problem.

According to him, the situation has become really hard to cope with. It is belief that the government has not done enough to cater for the people’s interests.

“We can’t go on living like this,” he said. “We Venezuelan people deserve much better.”

Power outages are nothing new for Venezuelans, including Diaz, who lives with his wife and three daughters in a Caracas suburb. But with the government’s recent announcement of a formal rolling blackout program set to last at least 40 days, things have only gotten worse, he recounted.

Vice President Aristobulo Isturiz announced Tuesday that there will be three days per week of mandatory leave for all nonessential public workers until further notice — a two-day work week for thousands of civil servants.

“We’ve had rolling blackouts since last month. We used to lose power two hours in the morning and two in the afternoon, but now it’s four hours straight,” Diaz said.

At a paint store, owner Luis Marcano was embittered at how the current economic mayhem has crippled his business.

“I’ve been waiting all morning to sell something,” he said.
