Solar-powered mosquito trapping system launched

The war against malaria has been taken to the next level with the launch of MTego, a solar-powered insecticide-free mosquito trapping system.


The product was made by Engie Energy and PreMal companies and aims at combating the spread of malaria – a major killer disease in Africa, especially in rural areas.


‘‘To achieve malaria elimination in the country, we must empower households to acquire long-term sustainable solutions,’’ said Engie Energy Kenya Director Fredrick Noballa at the launch of the product in Nairobi yesterday.


Malaria is expensive to control and treat with countries spending huge sums of resources on it.
