State Firms Reportedly Largest Kenya Power Defaulters

Confidential documents shared among energy stakeholders reportedly show that parastatals, national and county governments have a pending electricity bill of over U.S.$43 million as at the end of June 2020. The government has also accumulated billions in deficit for the money meant to fill the gap left by lower tariffs for rural customers under the Rural Electrification Scheme. The debt by government agencies now adds to the pain of pending payments for Kenya Power which has been worsened by the Covid-19 pandemic.
