The deputy president commissioned new generators in Wajir town that were supposed to be in operation by Monday last week but that has not been the case.
Residents are now angry over the blackout that has inconvenienced the business community especially and they are threatening to strike if the issue is not solved in due time.
The new generators were supposed to counter the power rationing and constant blackouts problem in the region.
Residents are impatient over the slow installation of the generators citing that business and other activities in the area have been paralyzed as a result.
Wajir residents have been experiencing power outages over the years. This is mainly because it is not connected to the national grid. In this regard, the town would go for weeks without electricity and sometimes even months, something the Deputy president was hoping to end. In the recent past, the main generator had broken down and was beyond repair by the Kenya Power Company.
