    1. Actually its not car batteries. The werehouse belong to an engineering company that is sub contracted by airtel to service and maintain their towers. So the batteries are used for power back up and they can cost as much as 400pin each. Dzimakhala dzimabatire dzikulu dzikulu zoti wekha sunganyamule
