Kenya was plunged into darkness on Tuesday evening after nearly all parts of the country experienced power blackout.

Nation reporters spread across the country have reported that their areas have no power.

In Nairobi CBD near Nation Centre, sounds of diesel generators could be heard from various buildings as landlords sought to keep operation going.

Kenya Power said a “power system disturbance led to loss of electricity supply to most parts of Nairobi and adjacent areas”.

However, the blackout was reported as far as Mombasa, Meru and Kisii.

General manager in charge of network management Eng Daniel Tare said the company engineers are battling to identify the fault and restore power supply as quickly as possible,  added Kenya Power.

On Twitter, the power distributor was inundated with queries on the blackout and only gave a generic response: “We’re sorry about that. It is a known issue and we hope to have it fixed as soon as possible.”

It added: “Your main line is off due to a fault , issue currently being addressed by our team.”
