The cost of electricity could reduce if it continues raining and the water levels at Masinga Dam increase, Energy PS Joseph Njoroge has announced.

Masinga, which is usually closed if water levels hit 1,035 cubic metres, now has 1038.8 cubic metres.

In February, Energy CS Charles Keter warned that the dam could be shut down if it does not rain. He warned Kenyans of higher electricity bills and power outages due to reduced water at the dam as water levels hit 1,041.5 cubic metres.

Parts of the country experienced drought since July 2016. But many parts of the country have received heavy rainfall this March, leading to floods.
