Shame As Kenya Power Disconnects Powerful Governor's Electricity Over Unpaid Billions

Newly sworn-in Nairobi Governor Anne Kananu has had his City Hall-based offices resort to the use of generators after the Kenya Power and Lighting Company disconnected the supply of electricity in the building.

This move by KPLC has significantly affected services which has prompted some workers to miss work with the Kenya County Government Workers Union Nairobi staff branch Secretary Festus Ngari confirming this.

"The physically challenged and elderly staff are at a great disadvantage since they have to use stairs to access their offices as the lifts are not working,” Ngari stated.

The Utility firm has demanded that the Kananu administration should pay the Ksh 1.5 billion debt owed to them before they can restore power supply at the City hall premises which has affected the City hall Annex and the county Assembly wing to use generators.

Even though City hall had paid Ksh 50 million to reduce the arrears they owe to the Kenya Power Company, the utility firm have remained adamant that they will not reconnect the electricity unless the debt is cleared.
