KPLC offices in Nairobi

Kenya Power Limited Company (KPLC) on Wednesday disregarded claims of a three-day planned nationwide blackout.

The power firm through their twitter account, stated that the information that was being relayed to Kenyans through a circular on social media, was fake.

The misleading information had stated that KPLC had announced a total black out for the country starting on the 29th, 30th and 31st of February.

The false information further explained that the shutdown of the power grid was due to a full maintenance of all its generators during the three days.

KPLC disregards compensation claims

In January 2018, KPLC had dismissed claims that the company was compensating its consumers for a power outage.

According to the information that did rounds on the internet, consumers were required to give details in order to be compensated.
