Uhuru reduces Kenya Power connection fee

27 May 2015, 14:16 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has reduced the Kenya Power connection fee to KES 15,000 from the previous KES 35,000.

The president announced Wednesday that the fee will be reduced to allow poor Kenyans get access to the power connection easily.

He also ordered Kenya Power to accept payment in installments from Kenyans.

" Kenyans must be allowed access to power at a cheap and affordable cost," he said Wednesday.

The drop in fees will be a boost for Kenyans as well as the popularity of the Jubilee government as the fee was once as high as KES 70,000.

It is understood that less than 30% of Kenyans have access to power.

The move will boost Uhuru and the government, which woke up to news that its popularity ratings had dropped drastically.

" It will boost the President. It is a populist move that will gain him a few more friends," political analyst Michael Njenga says.

" We are in the era of every cost going upwards but now all of a sudden we have a cost that has gone down."

" Considering that the president is losing popularity, he will be keen to improve his ratings in different ways," Njenga believes.

The government has started several initiatives to help boost electricity reach in the country, starting with the move to ensure all public primary schools are linked to electricity by 2016.
