The frustrations that have plagued many Kenya Power customers with regards to high electricity bills has struck the ever flying singer Akothee.

The popular singer has taken to social media to put the near-monopoly power distributor to task over a seven-figure electricity bill for her palatial upcountry home in Rongo, Migori County.

She shared a copy of the power bill whose total amount reads Sh791,223. As if that’s not enough, the singer’s electricity bill for her house in Mombasa has skyrocketed from Sh15,000 to Sh100,000 per month.

“Am I in kenya or some other country , what is happening with KPLC, my bills just erected from 15, 000 per month in Mombasa to 100,000 per month,” lamented Akothee.

According to Akothee, she received a call from Kenya Power to inform her that there had been systematic error for the past 4 years for her electricity bill for her house in Rongo and that she is required to pay Sh 700,000 urgently.

“Now I recieve a call saying they had systematic era for the past 4 years & that all the bills they sent for Rongo is an estimate , & am required to pay 700,000ksh urgently , Half of the times I have lived in Rongo, the power has been 75% off & forced to ran the generator 24/7, one of my employees said his bills rose from 900 ksh per month to 20, 000ksh in a one bedroomed house , & all of a sudden he gets a bill of 200,000 ksh , due to their systematic era again , whats happening , any one who is feeling the heat, & whats this constant visit on private residence , dont you have a protocal ?, how many times do we have to open the gate for your meter readers , who cant even identify themselves , & expect to be bribed , yet when there is an emergency you take years to come , even if its a transfomer bust , whats happening ? I need to uproot this shit & instal solar asap , someone send me contacts for solar system nkt” Akothee ranted.

    It’s happening to so many people. They also gave us that systematic error bs to require us to pay like 20 k. Someone from Cofek needs to look into this.
