Through Muhanya Solar, REA started the expansion of the existing bus bar at the Solwezi sub-station in October in order to supply Mushindamo and the surrounding areas.

All in all, those expected to benefit include 10 schools – Mbonge, Kishela, Kamabende, Kilumba, Kafilunga, Mushindambo Girls Technical, Yowela, Kalindi, Kifubwa and Kingovwa – while the rural health centres are Mbonge, Mushindamo, New Kishela and Kilumba.
