Kenya Power explains blackout

Kenya: Kenya Power has said a generation system breakdown at the Coast region caused a major power blackout affecting Nairobi, Mount Kenya and Coast regions. 

The fault has caused system disturbance triggering a power outage affecting most parts of the country except North Rift and West Kenya (Kisumu, Eldoret and Kitale), Kenya Power said in a statement yesterday.

“The company’s engineers are working to restore normal supplies in the shortest time possible. Kenya Power regrets the inconvenience to customers,” the company said.
