Fallen tree damages power line in Westlands

 

A tree this afternoon fell on a power line in the Westlands area of Nairobi affecting power supply on Rhapta road, Riverside Drive and parts of Kileleshwa area.

 

General Manager for Network Management, Eng. Daniel Tare said technical teams are working to restore supply as quickly as possible.

 

Trees account for 60 per cent of power supply quality challenges facing Kenya Power. Last year, the company launched a project involving cutting of trees and vegetation along power lines to eliminate interference with the flow of energy. The project is still on.
