The affected areas include; Embakasi, Kitengela, Athi River, Industrial Area, parts of Lang’ata, Jamhuri, Kilimani and Kileleshwa.
Others include; the Nairobi Central Business District, Hurlingham, Syokimau and Westlands.
The company said electricity will be restored by 5 pm on Wednesday.
“Engineers from the Kenya Electricity Transmission Company (KETRACO) are on the site to repair the line.”
