SUMMARY

Considering February will have 28 days this year, the post was clearly meant to be a joke

Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) were quick to draw their guns, urging the company to have some sense of humour

The Kenya Power Company was subjected to online ridicule on Wednesday morning after responding to a ‘fake’ post on a countrywide power outage.

The post stated that there would be total blackout for three consecutive days (29th, 30th, and 31st) this month due to maintenance but the company took it too seriously.

Considering February will have 28 days this year, the post was clearly meant to be a joke but the company responded on Twitter, dismissing it as fake.


Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) were quick to draw their guns, urging the company to have some sense of humour.

Here are the comments:

“All you guys missed the joke?”

“Someone at @KenyaPower_Care didn't attend their comprehension classes.”

“Kenya power you can't even connect a simple joke sasa stima mtawezana nayo?”

“So can you guarantee us that there will be power on 29th, 30th and 31st of this month?”

“It's even sadder that you, @KenyaPower , also fell for it and felt the need to explain yourselves.”

“May you get some sense of humour this coming month.”
