Two young brothers Kwesi and James Ansah from Ghana have made a mammoth effort by generating electricity from widely consumed root vegetable in Ghana, cassava, in their bid to curb the energy situation in the country.
In a short video report by the BBC, the two are seen grating cassava tubers into a paste in a bowl and connecting it with copper wires to generate electricity.
The two brothers are able to generate enough energy to power minor electrical gadgets.
