The Kenya Power and Lighting Company has issued a statement following the national power blackout that has hit the country.

In a statement released on November 24, 2022, Kenya Power said the power outage is a result of a disturbance and that it was working on restoring power.

"We have lost bulk power supply to various parts of the country due to a system disturbance and we are working to restore normalcy within the shortest time possible.

"An update on the restoration progress will be issued in due course. We apologise to our customers for the inconvenience caused," Kenya Power said in the statement.

This is the second time a national blackout is hitting the country in less than a month.

On November 2, Kenyans had to endure close to three hours in the dark after a technical hitch at the power distributors stations.

Households and business entities had to find different means of power while others had to be patient for the power restoration.

The frequent outages come after the ministry of energy announced a 200Mega Watt power addition to the national grid.
