Solar powered streetlights installed in Nakuru

30 September 2014, 19:56 Wilshere

Nakuru - Nakuru Executive for Roads, Joel Maina has said that his ministry has installed 13 high mast solar powered streetlights in Central Business District Area of Nakuru town.

He said that the installation of the new streetlights in the CBD will help reduce cases of insecurity in the town, and help traders to operate safely until late at night.

“So far, we have been able to install new streetlights in the CBD of Nakuru town and this will greatly help traders to operate well late at night,” he said.

The executive for roads said that the new streetlights are able to cover wider range areas compared to the old ones.

Speaking on Monday in Nakuru town during the inspection of the projects, Maina said that his ministry through the county government is in the process of acquiring more streetlights for other sub-counties.

“The advantage of these streetlights is that they can cover wide areas and so far we have placed another order for more to be brought in,” he revealed.

Maina however warned county residents against vandalizing the streetlights saying the county government has spent millions of shillings on the installation.

He maintained that his ministry will not hesitate to take disciplinary actions against anyone who will be caught vandalizing the streetlights.

“We are not going to spare anyone who will be caught damaging these new streetlights because the county government has spent a lot of money for the installation,” he warned.

The county executive also added that his ministry will install CCTV cameras in all the 11 sub-counties to help deal with cases of insecurity.
