Kenya Power has disclosed a list of areas slated to experience planned power interruptions on Wednesday, February 14, 2024.

The announcement might put a damper on the romantic aspirations of numerous Kenyans this Valentine’s Day, but it could also transform it into a charming candle-lit dinner.

Alternatively, it presents an opportunity to disconnect from electronics and bond by engaging in activities together, steering away from the usual Netflix and chill routine.

The interruptions, scheduled to occur between 9:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M., are set to affect various regions across the country, including parts of Machakos, Makueni, Kajiado, Nandi, and Kisii Counties.

In Machakos County, residents of Transview Estate, Total Athiriver, Kiuini School, Portland Senior Staff Quarters, and adjacent areas are advised to brace themselves for a power outage.

In Makueni County, affected areas include Makindu, Mtito Andei, Ikutha, Mutomo, and adjacent regions.

Parts of Kajiado County, specifically Lower Matasia, including Migaa Road and St. Patrick’s, are also on the list for the planned power interruptions.

Residents in Kamagut, Ntsa, Chebarbar, Tilalwa, Kapdilidil, Baraton Centre, Chepterit Girls, Kapkobis, Kapdididil, part of Maili Nne, and neighbouring areas in Nandi County are advised to prepare for a power outage from 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.

The power interruptions are necessary for maintenance and upgrade works aimed at improving the reliability and efficiency of the electricity supply infrastructure across these regions.
