Kenya power officials have today found themselves in a compromising situation after officers drawn from the Mombasa County inspectorate laid siege around Coast Teaching and Referral Hospital and confiscated their cars.
According to sources, Kenya power officials were on assignment to disconnect power at the critical medical facility over unpaid arrears after falling out with the county government.
In what has been interpreted as a retaliatory move, the county askari's barricaded the roads around the hospital and blocked Kenya power vehicles from leaving.
From the videos recorded in the scene, officers of the county inspectorate are heard ordering drivers to to drive alongside them to undisclosed destination.
Activities at the medical facility have since been paralyzed as critical processes that require electric energy have stalled.
Meanwhile, several county governments have been having run-ins with the the state parastatal over unpaid bills running to tens of millions.
Below are screencrabs of the scenes at Coast Teaching and Referral Hospital.
