At one point in August, almost the entire county was plunged into darkness for several hours with engineers working round the clock to restore power.

Among the areas affected was the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport where backup generators failed to come to life, leaving passengers stranded.

In the wake of the incident, Transport CS Kipchumba Murkomen executed several changes, with some senior Kenya Airports Authority bosses exiting.

The high cost of electricity is also another pain that Kenyans have complained about.

With the ongoing rains and with dams overflowing, Kenyans will be looking forward to lower electricity bills as has been the case in the past.
