Kenya Power cites technical hitch after parts of the country plunged into darkness

Parts of the country were plunged into darkness on Wednesday night as Kenya Power cited a technical hitch.

The company said two major lines supplying power to Nairobi, Rift Valley, Western Kenya and South Nyanza were affected.

“We would like to apologise to our customers for the inconvenience caused and reassure them that our technical team is currently working to identify the root cause and restore power to the affected areas,” Kenya Power said in a statement.

The outage occurred at around 7pm.

However, at around 9:30pm, the company issued another statement indicating that the issue had been resolved.

“We would like to inform our customers that we have restored power to the areas that were affected by an outage this evening, following a technical hitch that impacted two major lines supplying parts of Nairobi, Rift Valley, Western Kenya and South Nyanza. We would like to once again apologise to our customers for the inconvenience caused,” the statement reads.

Kenyans had taken to social media criticising Kenya Power over the power outage.
