Major Power Outage Hits Nairobi
A huge part of Nairobi was this morning affected by a major power outage that was caused by a breakdown at the Gitaru Hydro Station.
The power outage affected Westlands, Parklands, the CBD, Eastlands and parts of upperhill.
The Kenya Power attributed the problem to a loss of generation at the station at 11:30 am that affected other sources of electricity.
“At 11.30am, a loss of generation at Gitaru Hydro Station resulted into a major power outage that affected other sources of electricity. Efforts to restore normal supply are ongoing,” said the company in a statement.
Kenya Power tweeted that the affected areas were as a result of various faults on sub stations.
