Tuesday, May 7, 2024 - Kisii County was plunged into darkness early Tuesday morning after a gang reportedly attacked the Kenya Electricity Transmission Company (KETRACO) power station in Kegati and vandalized key equipment.

Kenya Power Regional Manager Dan Obiero confirmed the incident and said the 3 AM attack also left security guards injured.

“This is to notify you that last night criminals/vandals went to our main Kegati 33/11kv Substation and vandalized major equipment.

"This being our main biggest and main substation we have therefore lost power supply to the whole of Kisii County,” Kenya Power said in a message to customers.

While efforts to restore power were underway, Kenya Power cautioned that the process would take longer, given the extent of the damage caused by the attackers.
