Kenya Power is a public limited company whereby the government is the biggest shareholder, which means that the government has full control in the company.
Kenya Power has made a declaration that any person who is caught tampering with their property shall be penalized with a fine of Ksh200,000 or serve two years in prison.
Kenya Power has confirmed that Engineer court in Nyandarua has sentenced a man who was allegedly arrested for selling potato chips cooked using transformer oil by the name Elijah Mwangi Muthoga.
Apart from that, this man sentenced to two years in prison co-accused Zachary Mwangi Gitau, from whom he obtained the transformer oil, and this man has been handed a ten-year sentence or a Ksh10 million penalty.
The ruling comes out at a time when Kenya Power has tightened surveillance of the network through partnerships with other security agencies and the national government administration officers in order to stump out illegal activities and safeguard their property.
Kenya Power has also clarified that vandalism of transformers is one of the causes of power outages in the Kenyan nation, which undermines the quality and reliability of electricity. Kenya Power has also said that transformer vandalism is one of the things making the company operate at a loss.
