KPLC RACES TO BEAT PRESIDENTIAL DEADLINE TO LIGHT UP NAIROBI
This is after seeing a well-lit Kigali during his short visit there.
"Can I see you at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow morning," the President told Energy Secretary Davis Chirchir.
So Chirchir, PS Joseph Njoroge and Kenya Power MD Ben Chumo were summoned to see the President who gave them 10 days to have the city lit up.
In this Kenya Power has been impressive. Most of the City has been lit up with street lamps and the company had done 75 per cent of the targeted areas by the end of the deadline which was Friday last week (27/3/2015).
The unlikely challenge has arisen on the newly-built missing link roads such as Olenguruone, Dennis Pritt etc where the contractor put up street lights but did not do cabling forcing KPLC to dig up along the roads to connect the lamps.
