CS Treasury Forced To Cut His Speech At The KICC After Power Went Off

Wednesday morning's speech by Treasury Cabinet Secretary Njuguna Ndung'u was cut short by a power outage at the Kenyatta International Convention Center (KICC).

The Treasury's Budget Public Hearings came to an abrupt end when the sound failed around ten minutes into CS Ndung'u's remarks.

Public hearings on the projected 2023–2024 budget as well as the medium term period will be held by the National Treasury from Wednesday through Friday at KICC.

This only surfaced after the Kenya Power Lighting Company released a statement on its official Social Media platforms regarding the blackout that occurred in some areas of Nairobi on Tuesday, January 11. In that statement, the power company claimed that a problem with one of its transmission lines was to blame for the second outage.

A 220k Suswa-Embakasi power transmission line that evacuates power to the bulk substations at Athi River, Embakasi, and City Center, according to the report, "has sustained a persistent malfunction this evening."
