Fury as outage of Kenya Power token system hits homes, businesses
Thousands of homes were plunged into darkness for the better part of Wednesday evening after an outage of the Kenya Power token purchase system.
The outage continued the next day as Kenyans took to social media to express their frustration.
On Thursday morning, the company released a short statement on Twitter citing a hitch in the system.
“Our system is currently experiencing a delay in token generation. We request your patience as we send your tokens. Apologies for the inconvenience,” the post reads.
Below are some of the sentiments by those affected by the outage:

More than 24 hours and you haven't resolved your token processing challenges. Does it mean the country should come to a halt because of your inefficiencies? It is quite annoying.
