KPLC hits with a Mega Meter scandal

Kenya's power is considered to have lost more than Ksh. 100M in 2018. Rogue KPLC officers colluded with outsiders to inflate bills.


According to the DCI presentation, some bills that mounted to millions could not be paid directly to KPLC because fraudsters manipulated the system. 


" The rogue KPLC officers could take the cash from the clients, divide with the fraudsters as KPLC remains with a Zero," an intelligence officer said.


Kenya Power sought to distance itself from the shocking revelations of overcharging customers for almost four years now in a fraud case involving millions of shillings.

The company insists that it is through their intervention that the DCI got wind of the criminal activities with damning allegations that some 5000 brokers and even customers benefitted from the scam.

Kenya Power further noted that the criminal activities were cyber-crimes.

Some of the companies benefitted from the fraud system include;
  • Moi University Campus (North Rift)
  • Safaricom Investments Co-op Society Ltd
  • Nairobi Women's Hospital
  • Uchumi Supermarkets (North Rift)
  • Holy Cross Fathers (Nairobi North)
  • Dandora Catholic
  • Sasini Coffee House Limited
  • Turbo Highway Eldoret
  • Eldoret Polytechnic
  • Francisca Sisters of Anna (West Kenya)
  • Seventh-Day Adventist Church (South Nyanza)
