Police officers in the Jua Kali area of Embakasi on Wednesday arrested a Kenya Power imposter.

The officers, who were patrolling the area, noticed the suspect dressed in a Kenya Power uniform doing suspicious activities at an electric pole.

The man could not identify himself and the parastatal personnel who were called confirmed that the suspect did not work with them.

"The officers requested the imposter, who could not identify himself as a Kenya Power technician, to climb down, and they escorted him to Embakasi Police Station.

Kenya Power denies knowing him

"The Kenya Power security personnel who were called confirmed that the suspect does not work with the parastatal," stated National Police Service (NPS).

The police recovered his operating gear and safety equipment which they will use as an exhibit.

The NPS has condoned the public from these criminal acts saying it poses a grave danger to their safety and may cause injuries, damage to household appliances, and even death due to electrocution and fires.

Government infrastructure and installation destruction are considered economic sabotage, and he is expected to be arraigned in court.
