Today about 25 percent of the Earth's population is not wired for electricity. An estimated 300 million people in India, 600 million people in Africa, and 70 percent of the populations of Burma, Cambodia, Haiti and North Korea are living without electricity. But one country that has made great strides toward universal access to electricity is Kenya. NewsHour Weekend Special Correspondent Christopher Livesay reports on Kenya's plan to narrow the electricity gap and whether that investment will pay off.
