Nairobi - The government is fast tracking the completion of new power lines that will provide alternative sources of power to curb power interruptions in the country, Energy Cabinet Secretary Charles Keter has said.
Keter said the move will ensure that there is stable supply of power in the country and thus curb power outages that have been experienced frequently in the past.

"We have had the 220kv as the only power line that has been supplying power to Nairobi but we are building a 440kv line that will see that the cost of power is reduced and becomes stable," he said.
Keter said that the Jubilee government is committed to providing power to 60% of the Kenyans by August 2017.
