Several areas in Nairobi City are currently experiencing a power outage. 

The blackout that was reported at around 11.30 AM has left questions, with netizens wondering if they are the only ones affected. 

If you are experiencing blackout, then you are not alone. 

KPLC has released a statement saying blackout that has affected most areas was caused by the collapse of towers on transmission power lines.

"We have lost power supply due to collapsed towers on the Kiambere - Embakasi high voltage transmission power line at 10.45 am this morning.

Our engineers are working to restore electricity supply as the repairs are being undertaken. An update on the restoration progress will be issued in due course. We wish to apologise to our customers for the inconvenience caused," read a statement from KPLC.
