Nyeri Governor Demands Sacking of Energy CS Over Frequent Blackouts

Nyeri Governor Mutahi Kahiga has called on President William Ruto to fire Energy and Petroleum Cabinet Secretary Davis Chirchir for failing to address the recurrent power outages that have affected the country.

Kahiga made the remarks on Tuesday at the Dedan Kimathi stadium, where he presided over the 60th Jamhuri Day celebrations. He also criticized Transport Cabinet Secretary Kipchumba Murkomen for his poor performance.

Kahiga said that the president was working hard to improve the country, but some of his appointees were letting him down. He said that he had recently returned from abroad and found that there was no electricity. He said that such a minister should be dismissed.

He accused some Cabinet Secretaries of being idle and careless, saying that they were responsible for the three nationwide blackouts that had occurred in the last three months. He also mentioned the failure of the generators at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), which had disrupted operations at the country’s largest airport.

He urged the president to sack any Cabinet Secretary who was not doing his or her job and replace them with any of the 50 million Kenyans who were willing and capable. He said that even Nyeri county had enough qualified people to serve as ministers.

Kenya experienced a massive power outage on Sunday that lasted for several hours and affected most parts of the country. This was the third blackout since August, and it also affected the JKIA, where the stand-by generators did not start.
