Kenya Power and Lighting Company (KPLC) has announced that electricity has been restored to all parts of the country following a massive power outage on Wednesday.

“We are glad to report that electricity supply has resumed in all areas following the successful restoration of power generation plants that had earlier been affected by a system disturbance,” Kenya Power said in a statement issued at 8:58pm on Wednesday.

It added: “We thank all our customers for their patience.”

The power firm earlier Wednesday announced it had restored electricity supply to some regions in Kenya that had been affected by a massive power outage starting from 11:09am.

The outage affected Nairobi, Mt Kenya and the Coastal regions and went on for more than four hours as the power distributor maintained silence while Kenyans lamented endlessly.

According to KPLC, their technical teams had been on the ground since morning working to restore power supply to the three affected regions.

In their earlier statement, KPLC blamed the outage on a "system disturbance" which has left more lingering questions as many homes and businesses lacked power for over four hours.

“Nairobi, Wednesday, 2nd November, 2022… At 11.09 am this morning, we lost power supply due to a system disturbance, affecting parts of Nairobi, Coast, and Mt Kenya regions,” the statement read in part.

It then added: “We are working, in collaboration with other sector players, to restore the power supply as soon as possible.”
