Kenya: Three Billion Powerplant Sef for Nyabule Falls

A hydro electric power plant worth Sh3 billion is poised to be set up in Webuye's Nabuyole falls starting January next year.

A Chinese company Gezzouba has partnered with a local company, Western Engineering and Electrical limited to set up the project that will help boost power supply in the country.

Gezzouba assistant general manager, Chen Diannan, said the project will start in January and be completed by September next year. Webuye MP Alfred Sambu, who was present during the function, said the project will add 10.5 mega watts of electricity to the national grid.
