Graphic: Video Of Man Electrocuted While Vandalizing KPLC Cables



Earlier today a middle-aged man was electrocuted to death while on a suicidal mission to vandalize high voltage KPLC cables in Athi River.

According to oreliminary report from the Police, the victim was in a company of other five accomplices who targeted new HT cables under installation along Mombasa road.

Kenya Power officers have been installing new cables to pave way for Mombasa dual carriage highway construction.

KPLC says the cables had been connected to live wire as a security to the many other vandalism cases that have been reported before. The dude was unlucky while his accomplices managed to escape unhurt.
Kenya Power Region Coordinator Cyrus Njenga confirmed the incident and condemned the incident stating that it has become a ritual for natives to vandalize cables costing the company millions in the loss.
According to Njenga, increased cases of vandalism have halted the modification of electrical cables from one side of Mombasa road to pave way for dual carriage construction.
This incident comes after KPLC lost cables worth Sh10 million shillings in similar incidents in Athi River last week. The deceased body was taken to the Machakos Level Five Mortuary.
