A 30-year-old man, possibly with mental problems, climbed a high-voltage tower in Mozambique on Friday, 12, causing the electricity supply company to disconnect part of the grid.

Result: half of the country was without electricity for at least four hours to prevent the man from being electrocuted.

The tower is in the neighborhood of Fomento, in Matola, in Maputo, revealed a note from the Jornal de Notícias, from Portugal, this Sunday, 14th edition.
