Speaking to MWINGI TIMES, a trader lamented that Kenya Power has a habit of disconnecting electricity during the day and only allowing it to run during the night.

He exclaims that the situation was like night data bundles since the energy distribution monopoly reconnects his business at around 11am and switches off the following morning at 8am.

"They always disconnect us from the national grid at a time like this when schools are closed yet it is the time our businesses peak", said Alfred Mutua who runs Camp Nou studio for showcasing football, computer games and movies.
