Lebanon’s electricity company known as “Electricite du Liban” announced Thursday that it will take “disciplinary measures” against a staff member who was breeding chicken at the company’s Beirut headquarters, after the incident went viral on social media amid mounting criticism of the authority which is riddled with corruption.
Unfortunately, sadly and pity that in one of the most corrupt #Lebanese institution named #EDL (électricité du Liban), employers are raising chicken instead of working. #lebanon is known for its colossal electricity deficit even after spending 50 billions$ on that sector. #shame pic.twitter.com/f47flY6fYM— Hani Anouti (@HaniAnouti) July 29, 2018
🐓🇱🇧🐔This is not a joke. Lebanon’s National Electricty Company is incapable of offering electricity but has a state of the art in-house chicken coop https://t.co/LiiYPEybyy v @LorientLeJour “Des poules élevés au sein d’EDL.

They are teaching them to ride a bike. Each bike has a dynamo and while peddling in place these chickens will generate electricity and when u tie all the bikes together u might get 1KW of power. It is the NEW ECO-FRIENDLY way to solve Lebanon's electricity problem 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣— Tom (@Tom86322457) July 28, 2018
