Sonko's team clamps down KPLC cars after they disconnected power at City Hall

Kenya Power has complained over conduct of Sonko's officers

The clamping down is reported to have started after KPLC engineers disconnected power at City Hall over a pending Sh990 million debt.

In its Twitter account, Kenya Power specifically complained of one of its cars, registration KBG 859C which they said was not only clamped but also towed despite having made the relevant parking fees.

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko's communication officer, Richard Bosire, however denied that the incident was in any way linked to the disconnection of power at City Hall.

The County has also issued a press statement where they offered to pay Sh15 million for restoration of power as the debt crisis is resolved.

Nairobi County stated a joint task force, that was to resolve the dispute over the exact mount the two organisations owe each other, should be allowed to complete its work.

The county is also claiming a total of Sh806 million for rates and wayleaves for the distribution of power.

"NCCG has no problem paying what it owes. We only request that the taskforce be given time to reconcile these debts. One practical way to deal with this would be for a debt swap where we net off, and the balance paid by whoever’s debt will be larger," the county government's statement read in part.
