The country is staring at a long power blackout period as Kenya Power struggles to get access to new transformers. According to a local newspaper, Kenya Power is currently experiencing procurement issues, which has resulted in transformer supply delays. Engineers at the power company have been forced to take faulty transformers out of service for longer periods of time before reinstalling them in order to restore normal power supply. This could, in turn, expose both households and businesses to longer durations of power disruptions.
