Yesterday, we reported that the Ministry of Energy is set to declare force majeure on power supply contracts.
Citing the pandemic, it wants to recuse Kenya Power from honouring some supply contracts.
According to the ministry, and also verifiable facts, the distributor is stuck with power it can’t sell because of effects of the pandemic.
However, the government must use this opportunity to restructure Kenya Power and the energy sector as whole.
