Mlango Kubwa Residents In Power Blackout For Weeks


Mlango Kubwa residents in Mathare Constituency are decrying lack of electricity in the area for more than a month.

The residents claim that Kenya Power officials disconnected power in the area over what they termed as illegal connections.

Sanchez Mwangi a resident of the area says Kenya Power disconnected power in all houses including those that have been paying electricity bills.

Mwangi says the situation has led to a high rate of insecurity and some residents have also started vacating their houses following the blackout that started in January.

He says that the residents’ attempt to get Kenya Power officials to restore power in the area have been futile.

They say that their leaders including the area MCA Patricia Mutheu have abandoned them and have refused to intervene on their behalf.
