Eight recently installed solar street lights along Suswa to Kibiko Road have been stolen. The thieves targeted the panels, the lamps and the batteries.
Fiona who uses the road daily said, “the road was very safe when the street lights were working, but now I’m afraid to walk alone after 7pm”. Several other regular users of the road agreed with the sentiments of Fiona and requested the police to increase patrols along the road.
The lights were installed by the county government of Kajiado through the ward development funds. According to the Former Ngong MCA Paul Supet each street light during his tenure cost Approximately Ksh200,000.
