KUWAIT: Shuwaikh Industrial is all lit up again. After repeated complaints by Kuwait Times to the Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW) and then to the Public Authority for Industry (PAI) regarding total darkness in Shuwaikh industrial area, the lighting department of MEW finally fixed the streetlights.

Mohammed Al-Sarraf, Supervisor of the Lighting Department for the Capital Governorate, told Kuwait Times that although this area is under the responsibility of PAI, which should fix the streetlights, yet his team came to fix them as Industrial Shuwaikh is a vital area and they have received repeated complaints about the nonworking lights.

"Since the 1990s, PAI was assigned to take care of industrial areas, including Industrial Shuwaikh, but they are not fixing any streetlights although they have a special department for this purpose. But due to the importance of this area, we came to fix them," stressed Sarraf. PAI hasn't responded to any complaints by Kuwait Times.
