Before the advent of the one mile electricity project, these tools were house hold names. A driller, a (Koroboi) lighting lamp fuelled by paraffin and a charcoal energized iron box.
These tools only exited the scene only ten years ago, courtesy of the Last Mile electricity scheme fueled by the Jubilee Government.
Prior to uptake in electricity installations, these were common tools in rural Kenya and various slums. Now they are rare…..but are still in use in extreme cases.
Most of these are indicators of poverty index. Their continued decline is excellent news to the people of Kenya
