Energy CS Breaks Silence On Power Black Outs

Written By Gerald Gekara | |

Energy Cabinet Secretary Amb. Monica Juma has aired her concerns on the need to reform the power utility firm Kenya Power and Lighting Company.

In a series of tweets, CS Monica Juma said there was need for reforms to provide a secure and reliable electrical supply. 

“The power outages in the last two days underscore the imperative and urgency of implementing the proposed reforms in our power sector to ensure stable and reliable power supply.”

She said the ministry was working to resolve the power hitch in a series of reforms to the sector.

“The Ministry of Energy is hard at work to ensure that the experience of the last two days does not recur. I call upon all Kenyans, institutions, employees in the energy sector and our partners to rally behind and support these reforms.”

Kenya Power and Lighting Company (KPLC) said the blackouts began Monday night and were caused by the breakdown of the Kiambere-Embakasi high voltage transmission power line. 

Kenyans have condemned the three-day power outage, which has hampered commercial operations and daily activities.
