Kenyan in and around Cape Town

Kenya Blackouts: Cry my beloved country!!


Parts of Kenya will be in darkness on Wednesday as the power company starts rationing electricity to homes and factories. Parts of Kenya will be in darkness on Wednesday as the power company starts rationing electricity to homes and factories …

The worst of the blackouts will be in Nairobi, Rift Valley and Western parts of the country …

The power shortage could get worse if the October rains fail, since nearly half comes from hydro sources. Kenya Power buys power in bulk from both public and private sector power generators, which it then retails to its customers countrywide

Back at the ranch, many times I drive with my lights off in Cape Town … Will Kenya ever have contingency plans for power, food and other necessities?! I know there was the Eskom saga a few yrs ago … but that was so well managed that we hardly noticed! Really hii ni post ya kiwaru!
