Comedian Njugush hits out at Kenya Power after national outage

Comedian Njugush is at it again, this time calling out on Kenya Power for what he says is rationing of power to Kenyans.

The award-winning actor, born Timothy Kimani, did a short skit besides a river saying it was time Kenyans manufactured their own power rather than depending on what he termed a failing company.

“We’ve been living on guess work. Have you ever planned a movie escapade with your girlfriend and when you’ve settled in at around 9 am the lights go off? And you know 9am lights do not come back soon. What kind of country are we living in?” he posed.

A rather disappointed Njugush made the comments a day after Kenyans were plunged into darkness following a countrywide outage.

The public firm explained the outage was caused by a fault on the Suswa – Embakasi’s high voltage transmission power line and lasted for 6 hours.

“Have you ever bought electricity and saw how much tax you have to pay for it? It is like we buy taxes with a sprinkle of electricity,” he added.

Elated Kenyans on Twitter could not hide their joy with this brilliance and ability to divulge issues affecting Kenyans in a comic way.
