Dah! Yaani Kenya kuja kuifikia mbona ni safari.

========

Kenya has been ranked as the top country in the world in reducing the population with no access to electricity, pointing to the impact of the State’s focus on rural areas for nearly a decade.

The Energy Progress Report for 2021, a product of a partnership between the World Bank and bodies such as the International Energy Agency, says Kenya’s electrification pace is now ahead of population growth.

Kenya’s annualised increase in electricity access between 2010 and 2019 was at 5.6 percent — the largest among the top 20 countries in the world with the biggest electricity access gap.

The increased pace of electrification, also supported by off-grid solutions such as solar, points to the fruits of the State’s last-mile connectivity programme, which was launched in 2014 mainly targeting rural areas.

Kenya’s growth dwarfed the world’s average growth of 0.8 percent, with the closest countries being Bangladesh (4.1 percent), Uganda (3.2 percent), Tanzania (2.5 percent), India (2.4 percent), Myanmar and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea with 2.2 percent each.
“Among the 20 countries with the largest deficits, Bangladesh, Kenya, and Uganda have made the most progress in electrification, as they achieved annual growth in access of more than three percentage points between 2010 and 2019,” says the report.

By the way KETRACO and KPLC are really doing a great job. Huku Kanairo Power outages sikuizi zimereduce ikipotea haiwezi maliza 5 minutes kabla haijarudi. Stima hupotea tu time ya schedule maintenance na lazima watujulishe in advance. If you are keen you will notice KPLC are upgrading their infrastructure. Mambo ya stima tumewachia KPLC wamalize sahii tuko mbioni kuconnect broadband internet in every household.

It also means the Live Line Team strategy is working, to be honest i can attest to the 5 minutes too, unless ni zile planned maintenance za from 9 to 5pm which are always gazzetted
