01 March 2016, 12:13 Wilshare

Nakuru - Residents of Mbaruk ward in Nakuru town have decried against power blackout for the past four days in the area.

The residents said that they have not been having power since on Friday and that the Kenya power officials have not reported in the area.

Speaking on Tuesday to the media at Mbaruk trading center, Felix Maina a welder said that they have tried severally to contact Kenya Power through their emergency line but they have not been responding.

“This is the fourth day we do not have electricity power in this area yet the officials of Kenya Power have not even come to check what could be a problem,” he said.

Maina said that most of the businesses at Mbaruk trading center has been paralyzed since most of them depends on electricity.

He said that for the past five months they have been experiencing power outages in the area but the Kenya power officials are yet to come up with long term solution.

Bernard Kirongo a farmer in the area said that three weeks ago there were two men who were spotted on power lane cutting wires from the poles and that despite calling Kenya power immediately they only came three days later.

“There was a time when we saw two men cutting power lanes on a broad day light and when we called Kenya power to inform they came after three days,” he said.

Kirongo said if something is not done urgently there might be cases of insecurity in the area.
