"Good morning. Our system is currently experiencing a delay in token generation.

"We request your patience as we send your tokens. Apologies for the inconvenience," the deleted Kenya Power tweet read.

Customers waiting for over 24 hours

Some of the Kenya Power customers revealed that they had been waiting to receive their tokens for over 24 hours.

Others revealed that they had been trying to get in touch with Kenya Power's customer care personnel to no avail.

According the tweets posted, some of those affected were business people whose work had been inconvenienced by the delay.

Some commentators also shared tweets after they had received their tokens.
