He complained of being treated unfairly by the State-owned power company, adding that he had been exorbitantly overcharged.

“Mr Speaker, I have been treated as a criminal by Kenya Power. The electricity supply to my home here in Nairobi has been disconnected just because I questioned why I had to pay a bill of Sh699,000 which I have never paid before.“Wetangula told the House.

“We have come to a point where a Kenyan who was paying Sh2,000 per month is now paying Sh10,000 per month as electricity bill, where the country has no stable supply of the electricity itself,” Mr Wetangula lamented in the Senate.

The voice of Mr Wetangula adds to hundreds of Kenyan’s pleas to the monopolistic power supplier, even after President Uhuru Kenyatta promised to lower the cost of energy in his inauguration speech at Kasarani on November 28, 2017.

“Over my term, we will grow and sustain this manufacturing sector, and raise its share of the national cake from 9 to 15 percent.

“To achieve this leap, I have directed that with effect from 1st December 2017, the power tariffs charged to manufacturers will be reduced by 50 per cent between the hours of 10:00pm and 6:00am,” the President said.
