Kenya Power - KPLC

Kenya Power has scheduled power interruption in only One County today, April 26, 2024.


In an update shared via their socials, the company mentioned a list of several arrears that will experience power outages in Muranga County.

These areas are; Shadenet, Maporomoko, Karangaita Coffe Est, IPM Farm, Pental Flowers, Parts of Ngoigwa Est, Simbi Roses Est, and adjacent customers. 

The company said the interruption will be effected between 9.00 am and 5 pm in mentioned areas in the county.

Upgrade power metres by November 24

Just the other day, the Kenya Power and Lighting Company warned customers that their metres will not be able to accept electricity tokens if they do not upgrade them by November 24.

The company rolled out a nationwide campaign to inform its customers about the Token Identifier (TID) project so that no one will be locked out once the deadline hits.

Speaking in Mombasa during a media sensitization meeting, KPLC Coast regional manager engineer Phineas Marete said the company is currently carrying out an upgrade of meters.

“We are currently doing media campaigns and road shows to inform our customers about the project. We also plan to get in touch with religious groupings so that the information can be availed to customers,” said Marete.

Marete said that the staff involved in the project will be carrying their identification badges to lock out fraudsters so that customers can identify them as KPLC staff.

“We are working hand in hand with security agencies and the local administration. We shall be moving around with them so that in case there are issues of people masquerading as KPLC staff they are quickly identified and apprehended,” Marete said.

He warned the public that the company had received several cases involving people calling customers telling them that they would be disconnected if they didn’t pay them some money.

Others he said were being told that they would be given huge quotations if they failed to part with a certain amount of money.

“All those are criminal activities and our security teams have been up and moving. We have made several arrests involving members of the public”

“Going forward, our message to the customers will be do not pay any monies outside the official KPLC pay points,” he said.
