The big problem with Africa will be that after you build it and it's operating, it will be nationalized. And then run into the ground (see Chernobyl), and when (not if) they have a radiation release, you will be blamed. If your company still exists at that point, it will be sued (in America so they can do it on spec), if not, then you will likely be sued personally.

Building stuff that's an "attractive nuisance" (as in it attracts lots of lawsuits, meritorious or not) where the rule of law is...uneven at best... is not a good idea. Unfortunately I don't think this will work well as an end run. No, we have this buildup of crud, and we have to remove it.
