Power supply has been restored in all parts of Kenya after the East Africa nation was hit with a nationwide outage on Tuesday morning.
The nationwide outage followed the collapse of some towers of the high voltage transmission line connecting the capital to the Kiambere hydroelectric dam.
The country’s power utility company, Kenya Power, said in a statement that as of 1435 GMT, power had been restored in all parts of the country except in three administrative regions known as counties and whose supply was expected back by 1500 GMT.
“Work has also commenced on reconstructing the collapsed electricity towers,” Kenya Power said.
