NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Kenya’s only electricity distribution company says it’s restoring power to parts of the country after a widespread blackout in East Africa’s economic hub after towers collapsed on a major transmission line.
Kenya Power said in a statement on Tuesday that the collapse occurred on the Kiambere-Embakasi power line. The statement didn’t say what caused the collapse or when power would be restored across the country of some 55 million people.
Already power has returned to parts of the capital, Nairobi.
