Zimbabwe: Solar Street Lights Batteries Theft Delays Installation.
Continuous theft of solar lamp batteries had delayed the installation of solar lights along the Airport Road in Harare as we all as in the central business district (CBD), a council official has said.
However, the installation process has started after Harare City Council instituted measures to protect the batteries.
Harare City Council spokesperson Mr Michael Chideme said the authority lost 52 batteries from theft, prompting the council to remove all 588 solar light batteries along the Airport Road as a measure to secure them.
"We were drawn back by theft which is why we removed all the batteries from the solar street lights along the Airport Road.
"We can now safely say we have reconstructed battery boxes to ensure that the batteries are safe and secure from thieves and vandals," said Mr Chideme.
He said the solar street lights, especially those along the Airport Road were not up to par in terms of their quality because of flooding from the drainage system that affected the installation sites and moisture among other problems.
