KENYANS THRUST into
darkness as countrywide
blackout causes disarray.
No word on cause of
Sisi bongo tumezoea; Ngeleja anatufanyia usanii huku akivuta mkwanja!!
Where is Hon. NAIROBERRY a Kenyan Roving Ambassador, he might have a CLUE!
Poleni sana majirani zetu kwa tatizo la umeme, sisi huku TANZANIA tumezoea; si amini kama munataka kutuiga!
Sasa hawa KPCL wanataka kuwaiga TAANESKO kwa lipi zuri?
Nipo Nairobi na imenishangaza kidogo...
Wataonekana umeme ukirudi huko kwao, na subiri matusi watakayokuja nayo...:smile-big:
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.
fyi. the power blackout was half the country due to an error at a substation in juja.it lasted only four hours.
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.

A number of major urban centres
around the country were on Saturday
night thrown into darkness following
a power blackout.

9.45pm went on until about Sunday

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.

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

phones in co-ordinating the work.
