Colombia minister resigns over energy problems

Tuesday, March 8, 2016

Colombia's Mines and Energy Minister Tomas Gonzalez has resigned his post, President Juan Manuel Santos said, amid a series of energy generation problems sparked by drought.

Colombia has suffered from a severe drought across much of the nation since the El Nino weather phenomenon began last year and dropping water levels at reservoirs and hydroelectric plants have caused damage at power generators.
