transMaterials from Kenya Power worth millions of shillings were recovered at the home of Chekalani ward rep Titus Kwoma in Lugari on Thursday.

Armed police and security officers from the company recovered transformers and other material vandalised from power lines in the region.

According to Kenya Power Chief Security Officer in Western region Zachary Ombati, the materials were enough to set up an illegal line.

He said that the officers received a tip-off from members of the public which led to the raid.

Ombati said Kenya Power has been losing materials from its lines over the past 6 months.

“We have been setting up lines and when we come back the following day we find the lines vandalised and the material missing.”

He said the MCA will be duly arrested to assist in investigations.
