Power outage in Kenya is not anything odd as it has become the order of the day. This is because there is no enough power for all of Kenyans at once. Therefore, electricity is rationed per time so that we all have to enjoy its benefits.
In this regard, Kenya Power and Lighting Company (KPLC) has forwarded a notice to all its customers in the western and Rift-valley regions ahead of what is expected to be a huge power outage in a whooping sixteen counties.
The outage will take effect tomorrow (27th) and Sunday (28th) as Kenya Power tries to find a solution to edge out the power shortage in these regions.
According to KPLC, the outage will be because the company will switch off the Lessos-Lanet 132kV power transmission line. This is in line with the stringing which is set to happen on the line which will raise its volts to 220kV. This will help in solving the electricity crisis in both Western and Rift-valley regions.
More so, Nandi, Uasin-Gishu, Bomet, Kericho, Elgeyo-Marakwet and Transzoia will be affected in Rift-valley region.
