Two activists have want the court to compel the competition authority to break up the Kenya Power to end its dominance as required by law.

In a petition filed yesterday, Okiya Omtatah and Eunice Ng’ang’a ask the court to order the Energy Regulatory Commission to license other companies to distribute electricity everywhere in Kenya without any limitation as to area of coverage as per Section 27 of the Energy Act. They also want the court to declare that ERC has failed to license other players to compete with Kenya Power as required of it under Section 27 of the Energy Act. Omtatah and Ng’ang’a have enjoined in the suit KPLC, ERC, Competition Authority of Kenya, Kenya Consumers Protection AdvisoryCommittee and the Attorney General.
