XINHUA NEWS SERVICE REPORTS FROM THE AFRICAN CONTINENT

 

There are too many power cuts in whole of coast

Coastweek -- At the stroke of midnight on Friday, 18/19th of March 2016, the whole of Coast Province descended into darkness and the unbearable heat and humidity that we are all experiencing of late.

Thanks to Kenya Power we spent the remainder of the night and most of Saturday being tortured by the heat and by extension, lack of water, too, since the pumps are all dependent on this questionable power company.

Mercifully, most of us finally got our power back, but, a whole lot of others still have not got their supply back to normal and are suffering high voltage even as I write this.

Also, why does the Coast Province suffer so many outages?

Not just in a month or week, but everyday?

One never hears the same kind of outages involving a whole town/city regarding the rest of the country.

But, Mombasa can get an award for the number of times that the whole town (I will not call it a city since it does not behave like one), loses power for hours on end.

Friday night was a case in point.

Can Kenya Power investigate and whoever else that is interested, why the Coast and in particular Mombasa has so many outages on any given day?

There are also fluctuations and power surges which, when reported are given scant attention by this monopolizing power company.
