Happening Now: CS Treasury Speech Interrupted In KICC After Power Went Out

On Wednesday morning, a power outage struck the Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC), interrupting Treasury Cabinet Secretary Njuguna Ndung'u's speech.

Around 10 minutes into CS Ndung'u's remarks at the Treasury's Budget Public Hearings, the sound cut out, bringing the proceedings to a complete halt.

On Wednesday through Friday, the National Treasury will hold public hearings at KICC on the projected 2023–2024 and medium term period budget.

This only came up after the Kenya Power Lighting Company issued a statement on its official Social Media platforms regarding the Tuesday, January 11, blackout that affected parts of Nairobi. In that statement, the power company claimed that the second outage was brought on by a problem with one of its transmission lines.

The notification said, in part, that "a 220k Suswa-Embakasi power transmission line that evacuates power to Athi River, Embakasi, and City Centre bulk substations has suffered a continuous fault this evening."
