KABOGO urges WILLIAM RUTO to terminate Kenya Power’s monopoly owing to countrywide blackouts


William Kabogo, a former Kiambu County governor, has encouraged President William Ruto to allow other power producers to compete with Kenya Power and Lighting Corporation (KPLC).

Kabogo’s declaration came after majority of the country experienced a power outage on Saturday.

According to the former county executive, if the President permits other companies into the sector, they will be able to offer power at a lower cost than Kenya Power is presently billing its customers.

“Time to abolish KPLC’s monopoly, William Ruto, open up the industry for competition, many firms will give power to the people at less than half the current KPLC costs, and I know you’re aware,” Kabogo stated.

He claims that if other power suppliers are let in, Kenya Power and Lighting Company’s monopolistic power will be broken.

The Saturday blackout was caused by a malfunction on the Suswa-Loyangalani high-voltage power transmission line, according to Kenya Power.
