Kenya Power Disconnects Illegally Connected Electricity in Kibera as They Reveal Its Dangers

Kenya Power and Lighting Company team based in Nairobi West have reportedly led an operation to disconnect illegal power connection in Soweto village, Kibera.

Two transformers which had been connected at the place illegally were recovered and disconnected. The residents were left in darkness and later advised to visit Kenya Power container office at AMREF for facilitation to get proper power connection.

KPLC has revealed that illegal power connections are not only dangerous because they are substandard but they also deny the company the much needed revenue required to facilitate network maintenance. Therefore, their security team is determined to persue, arrest and prosecute all the suspected criminals.

The move by KPLC comes a few hours after they confirmed that a person was electrocuted to death in Montana area, Kisauni Sub-county in Coastal area. According to them, one person lost life on the spot after touching an energized clothesline. The tragic incident also left one person nursing serious injuries sustained from the clothesline.

An electric power pole had reportedly fell on the clothesline on the neighbouring house. However, Kenyans have now blamed Kenya Power for the incident saying that they are very negligence and they don't respond to complains on time from members of the public.
