Kenya Power has Saturday announced the interruption of power supply in parts of Kisumu County on Sunday 20th June.
The interruption will commence from 8 am to 9pm to facilitate the completion of works on the new 220kV Olkaria –Kisumu high voltage transmission line.
Kenya Power notes that the planned shutdown will affect electricity supply to Abyssinia Steel Mills, Kisumu Concrete, Transport Skylark, Mamboleo market, Wigot, Kibos Sugar and adjacent customers.
