KPLC steps up fight against transformer vandalism

17 May 2013, 16:32 James Kabotia

The Kenya Power company has partnered with Laikipia County government and area security agents in sensitizing the public against transformer vandalisation.

Speaking to the media in Nanyuki, the company's Mt Kenya regional Manager Eng. David Mwaniki said that vandalisation of transformers has not only adversely affected the company’s service delivery but also investments in the County.

Eng. Mwaniki said that KPLC in partnership with Governor Joshua Irungu will install a power line stretching from Nanyuki to Rumuruti. The project is expected to be completed by the year 2015.

He further said that the project which will cost KES 750M will help make Laikipia a County worth emulating.

Eng. Mwaniki further noted that a massive power station will be constructed at Rumuruti in a bid to improve the quality of power supply in Baringo, Mararal and Nyahururu.

“More than 30 transformers have been vandalized in the recent past with Thika being the most affected area in this region,” said Mwaniki.

He however noted that vandalism cases have reduced, and urged members of public to be wary of power lines as they lead to myriads of deaths in Kenya.
