Governor Wambora installs floodlights in Embu County town centers


    Governor Martin Wambora’s plans to transform Embu into a 24-hour economy were realized after the county government installed floodlights in 39 townships spread in the region.
    Embu was among the eight counties which were honored with Governor’s Awards of Excellence in various sectors of development in 2015.
    An interesting phenomenon lights up whenever there is a power blackout in Embu town and its environs in the evening thanks to devolution.
    Unlike the nights of yesteryears when the town would be engulfed in darkness, the case is different today due to the installation of solar-powered streetlights that provide the much-needed light in the midst of the blackout.
    The streetlights and floodlights were erected by the County Government at a cost of Ksh. 40 million.
    Governor Wambora termed the project as “green energy technology” and said that it would save the environment.
