Proceedings at the Milimani Court were temporarily halted on Tuesday morning after a power outage at the premise.

The blackout forced an adjournment of bail hearing for 17 senior Kenya Power managers who are charged with various counts of corruption.

The power supply was eventually restored.

The accused persons were on Monday charged with a total of seven counts including conspiracy to commit an economic crime, abuse of office, failure to comply with procurement laws and conspiracy to defeat justice.
