In 2012 I noticed the barbers charging a car battery to power their clippers with a solar panel. When I returned to Woodlane village in Dec 2016, Solly Sithole (34) (the business owner) expanded this business to 6 solar panels and 6 employees.
The people of Woodlane village are in constant danger of being evicted. Most of the people find it easier to live in the suburbs where there are more jobs. If they are moved to locations further many will be unable to afford the transport costs. Many people survive by doing temporary jobs in the nearby suburbs.
