The US Embassy in Kenya announced that all consular services slated for March 3, 2020, had been cancelled due to damage caused by a power surge on Monday.

Through a statement seen by Ureport, the embassy noted that all visa, passport and applications for citizenship had been halted temporarily.

All appointments were therefore rescheduled.

“Due to damage inflicted on our consular systems from a power surge and outage, we are currently unable to process visa, passport, and American Citizen Services applications.

“Our technicians continue to work around the clock to repair the damage,” read the statement.

Kenya Power also weighed in on the matter saying there was a faulty cable inside the premise.

The company, however, assured the embassy that technicians would work on the matter immediately.

“We wish to point out that the power outage at @USEmbassyKenya is caused by a faulty cable inside the embassy premises and not a blackout as misinterpreted.

“Our technical team is assisting the embassy officials to restore normal supply as quickly as possible,” read the tweet.
