KPLC token charges have angered Kenyans who have taken to social media to share the taxes levied on electricity consumption.

The large and unexplained tariff hikes are what is angering consumers who have taken to social media to bash the power company over the high taxes levied on tokens.

Below are angry reactions:

@kavsmwenswa...Taxes with a sprinkle of electricity πŸ˜‚ #kplc

@Moha001_Onyango...Bought KPLC tokens for 1000 bob and only got 49 units. Used to get 58 units back in the days but what shocked me the most was that 622 bob went into taxes.

Even Escom in Mzansi doesn't charge this much. This is a rip-off.
