Kenya Power has condemned rampant attacks on its staff while on official duty.
In a statement on Wednesday, the Company said the emerging trend of violent attacks on employees doing their work is ”regrettable”
“While working to weed the network of illegal and dangerous connections, we regrettably note an emerging trend of violent attacks against our staff. The latest of these incidents happened on Monday, July 3, in Kitengela where our staff were attacked by the Kitui East Member of Parliament, Nimrod Mbai”.
“We have taken up this issue with the relevant authorities and the matter is now before the courts. As an entity that prioritizes the welfare of its staff and the public, we condemn this incident and we wish to categorically state that we do not condone any form of violence, at least not on our staff while on official duty,’ Kenya Power Managing Director and CEO, Joseph Siror said.
Similarly, the Institution of Engineers of Kenya has condemned MP Mbai’s attack demanding firm, legal action against him as it calls for the former police officer’s firearm license taken away and have him permanently barred from being a licensed arm holder.
