Electricity Consumers have a reprieve after the former Law Society of Kenya, LSK, boss Lawyer Apollo Mboya and the Kenya Power and Lighting Company, KPLC, reached an out of court agreement, today.
The High Court has today issued these orders.
1 KPLC to bill its customers only in accordance with Gazzeted electricity Tariffs. This means customers will not be over billed.
2. Moratorium on disconnection of electricity in Kenya for 30 days as they sort their mess. Customers who have exorbitant bills will be given room to raise complaints against the bills. An agreement reached should then be posted in the media.
3. Electricity Consumers Society to participate in fora.
The lawyer had sued KPLC over exorbitant bills and disconnection of power to customers with bill backlogs.
