KPLC on the Spot After It is Revealed That Over 10,000 Transformers Are Non-functional

Kenya Power and Lighting Company have found themselves on the wrong side after it was revealed that over 10,000 transformers are not functioning. According to Cabinet Secretary for Energy, Monica Juma, she wonders why Kenya Power is still buying new transformers yet there are those that have ceased to function and can easily be repaired.

While making her abrupt visit to Roysambu, Ruiru, Ruaraka and Industrial area, CS Monica Juma was able to meet some officials from KPLC whom she questioned about the non-functional transformers. She now wants them to write a report indicating how they will be able to repair those transformers so that they can be fully functional.

She has also revealed that some 59 officers from Kenya power are being investigated after being involved in a procurement dealings that are against the law. On the other hand some Kenyans are still lamenting how Kenya Power and Lighting Company has increased the charges for power and therefore, they are requesting the government to come to their rescue.[Photo Courtesy]

Others claim that some areas do not have electricity for a long time due to breakdown by some transformers and also theft where some people are stealing important parts of the transformers and even the transformer itself.
