The whole country is experiencing blackout caused by a system disturbance in the national grid caused by the high rains being experienced in the country at the moment.
The heavy downpour in the country has resulted to rise in water levels in water bodies in the country and this is now causing Kenya Power staff problems as was the case on Saturday morning.
Kenya Power has released a statement confirming that the disturbance has caused a blackout in the whole country but added that their engineers are working round the clock to ensure everything goes back to normal.
“We have lost power supply in the national grid due to a system disturbance which occurred on our transmission network at 5:49 a.m this morning. Our engineers are working to identify and address the hitch, towards restoring normal electricity supply,” read their statement in part.
Neighboring Uganda is also in blackout following the high water level being witnessed in Lake Victoria.
