Wajir residents have been experiencing power outages over the years. This is mainly because it is not connected to the national grid. In this regard, the town would go for  weeks without electricity and sometimes even months, something the Deputy president was hoping to end. In the recent past, the main generator had broken down and was beyond repair by the Kenya Power Company.

The Kenya Power and lightning have responded after a tweet highlighted that there are plans of citizens to hit the streets over power black out in Wajir.

KPLC  defended that their team is aware of the fault and that plans are underway to address the issue.
