By Damali Mukhaye

Kampala Capital City Authority has set aside Shs.4.4 billion for installing the CCTV cameras and solar powered street lights across the city.

This was revealed by the KCCA Executive Director Ms Jenipher Musisi while conducting a site visit of various roads that are lined up for installation on Monnday.

She says that by mid June, city dwellers will see lights going up arguing that over 750 lights alongside 40 cameras have already been shipped into the country.

Ms Musisi said the move was meant to not only light up the city but also switch from hydro power to solar energy, appealing to Ugandans to desist from stealing those bulbs.

Among the roads where the solar powered street lights are to be installed include, Jinja road, Kampala road, Queen’s way, Kintu road, Bombo road, Katwe, Entebbe road, Nile avenue, Kiira road  among others.
