US President Barack Obama will on Sunday unveil a plan, worth $7 billion over five years, to upgrade African power networks in a bid to reduce electricity cuts and blackouts that scare off business investment, the White House said.

Obama will announce the plan, which leverages existing cash and private finance, during a visit to Cape Town.
