Kenya Power released a statement clarifying that the widespread power outage disrupting businesses resulted from a malfunction in the system.

The announcement, dispatched approximately half an hour after the nationwide power disruption was identified, additionally conveyed the company’s efforts to rectify the situation and restore regular operations.

“We have lost electricity supply to various parts of the country due to a suspected fault affecting the power system,” read the statement in part.

“We are working to restore normalcy within the shortest time possible. An update on the restoration progress will be issued in due course.”

Kenya Power consequently apologized to its customers following the third extensive power outage in the country this year.

This incident led to public criticism of the utility company for its management of the persistent issue.

Kenyans voiced their concerns, urging accountability from Energy CS Davis Chirchir and Kenya Power CEO Joseph Siror, in response to the increasing occurrences of nationwide power outages.

”The frequent power outages in this country is a typical sign of underground nocturnal cabal activities. It is not a usual occurrence, neither is it by accident but by design. I dare say it is time for Davis Chirchir to leave Nairobi and retire in Kericho County,” lamented Saboti MP Caleb Amisi.

The disruption also impacted Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), marking its third outage since August of this current year.

The Ministry of Energy has not yet released a statement regarding the issue.
