    Mkuu, Nairoberry hana jipya kazi yake ku-copy na ku-paste kutoka kwenye broadsheet papers - anything KENYAN basi! Alafu cha ajabu hajuhi hata ku-activate link za URL husika, maneno tu na kudhalau wenzake.

    Mkuu, ni vizuri kama umeme umerudi - tunawatakieni KHELI; ila kuna kitu sija kielewa vizuri unaposema "due to an error at a substation in juja". Unaposema "error" una maana kwamba tatizo lenyewe lilisababishwa na PROGRAMMABLE LOGIC CONTROLLER (PLC) au kitu kingine, kama tatizo lilikuwa kwenye PLC basi four hours ni ETERNITY!

    the power outage was caused by a short circuit
    in a high voltage line at Juja sub-
    station.that's all that they said.

    Power outage resulted from Short
    circuit at Juja substation
    Updated 19 hr(s) 5 min(s) ago
    By Cyrus Ombati
    A number of major urban centres
    around the country were on Saturday
    night thrown into darkness following
    a power blackout.
    The blackout, which started at around
    9.45pm went on until about Sunday
    1am in the affected areas. But other
    places had not received normal power
    supply by Sunday afternoon.
    This affected many businesses in the
    affected areas, which depend on
    power. Homesteads were either not
    spared as callers said food was going
    bad in their freezers.
    Kenya Power spokesman Migwi Theuri
    attributed the blackout to a short
    circuit on a high voltage line at the
    Juja substation in Nairobi.
    "A short circuit on a major supply line
    at the Juja substation in Nairobi
    caused supply interruption that
    affected parts of Nairobi this evening,"
    read part of a statement sent from the
    firm.
    The statement added the Mt. Kenya
    Region, the West Region and most
    parts of the Rift Valley were not
    affected by the outage.
    The station is one of the major
    sources of power supply to the city
    and its environs.
    The engineers were working to restore
    supply, he said, and added that the
    process was gradual.
    A spot check around the country
    established that there was no
    electricity in major towns including
    Nairobi, Kisumu, Kakamega,
    Mombasa, Meru, Kisii, Eldoret, Thika,
    Nyamira, and Kericho.
    Police said no major or extraordinary
    incident was reported in the period.
    However, police were mobilized and
    told to be on alert.
    Their operations were affected as they
    rely on power to ensure their
    operations are on their
    communication channels.
    They resorted to batteries and mobile
    phones in co-ordinating the work.
