The nuclear power station just up the road (the only nuclear power station in Africa, nogal) has just suspended its Safety Officer.
Fortunately (I think, anyway) the reasons behind this are “merely” that when a drone crashed within the grounds of said power station, the security staff gave it back to the people who crashed it and didn’t report it, prompting the suspension of their boss and this quote from spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe:
Possibly they thought maybe it was just a small thing. And maybe it was a small thing, because we just don’t know.
I love this sort of blunt honesty from spokespeople.
To be fair, a couple of guards handing a drone back to some errant teenagers who were playing on the beach nearby is fairly low down the list of terrible things that a nuclear power station’s Safety Officer could be suspended for.
Although, of course, to be fair, a couple of guards handing a drone back to some potential terrorists who are planning an attack on the nuclear facility nearby is slightly higher on the list of terrible things that a nuclear power station’s Safety Officer could be suspended for, I suppose.
Anyway, all will be fine, because:
The police are investigating the matter, though, to see as to what went wrong and what can be done to make sure that something like this does not happen in future.
So that’s all ok then. Unless the
terrorists teenagers have already got all the footage they need.
