In the financial year of 2016/17, the Lindi Municipal Council decided, among other issues, to install solar powered lights in streets.
The reasons is not only to turn the old town look attractive but also to boost security and improve the working environment especially for the people who work or trade in the late hours.
The Municipal’s economist Jeremiah Mbelu reveals that the council agreed to install 155 poles of solar lights. “Each pole cost 4m/-,” says Jeremiah who is working in the Municipal’s planning office.
This means that the first phase of the project cost 620m/-. He adds that the next phase will be accomplished immediately after the ongoing projects construction of the street roads of Lindi town.
