Avert power outages, business disruptions

What you need to know:

  • Kenya Power attributed Tuesday's outage to the collapse of a pylon supporting the 220-kilometre high-voltage Kiambere-Embakasi line.
  • The explanation of a fallen pylon didn’t seem to placate Kenyans, who took to social media to express their anger over the power blackout.

Thousands of businesses across the country suffered huge losses on Tuesday following a power outage that lasted for the better part of the day. Operations in the manufacturing and hospitality sectors, hospitals as well as small businesses that put food on many a table were disrupted from as early as 10.45am to the evening, when power supply was restored.
