This has forced a lot of Kenyans who are already suffering under unemployed or minimum wage to look for other ways to make a living given how the crime rates have increased.

Kenyans have always complained of how high the electricity bills have been and the fact that the the country is reeling from the devastating effects of the Corona Virus.

This afternoon the president of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta, has given Kenyans a reason to smile after giving a new directive to the parastatal, Kenya Power to bring down the bills.

The electricity bill will go down by a whopping 33% by the month of December of 2021 which is the best news Kenyans could hear after the increase of price of fuel.

The president has ordered that electricity bills be brought down and this will translate to 33 shillings less in every 100 shillings of electricity tokens that you buy.

According to mathematics, if you are used to paying 500 Kenya Shillings for electricity, you will now he paying 330 Kenya shillings.

The President has given this directive after the Presidential Taskforce on Review gave the recommendations this afternoon at the President's office.

This good news will be taken positively by Kenyans who have seen the price index of so many products go up in the recent few months.

Kenya Power has been under review for a while since the complaints from Kenyans started.
