The associate battery manufacture (ABM) is the only company in Kenya that manufactures battery, produces solar batteries and automotive batteries.
On 22 of January 2022 the president gave an order that scrap metal dealings to be banned in order to end cases of vandalism of key public installation that are taking place in the country.
“The law is clear. These acts are nothing less than economic sabotage which fall under treasonable acts and the law is clear as to how we deal with treasonable acts. We will not allow you to destroy that which is for the growth and development of our country to benefit a few individual pockets,” he said in a statement released in the capital, Nairobi.
The ABM company has however warned the government against the move they made when they banned the scrap metals dealings that they were of help unto them.
They will imment the closure of 1billion of it’s local manufacturing batteries plants. It has therefore urged the government to uplift their descion on closure of scrap metal dealings.
