Police on the Kenya/Tanzania border in Illasit have been in darkness for two weeks after the KPLC disconnected it over unpaid bills.

Senior and Junior officers at the Illasit police station claimed on Sunday that even in their houses they have been operating without electricity.

“The worst that has hit us is that we are forced to public cyber cafes in typing and sending sensitive government information,” said one senior officer.

The officers accused their OCPD, Reuben Muli, of not making any effort to communicate with police headquarters to clear the bill.

“Some of our offices are dark and without electricity, it is hard to operate inside. We are forced to send our phones to other places to be charged,” said another officer.

As regards the sensitivity of some top-secret documents, another officer claimed such information can leave backtraces in public places.

Muli said as far as he is aware, the head office paid the bill and he could not understand why the KPLC had not reconnected the power.

“Let me check again with Nairobi to confirm the same before I get back to you,” said Muli and never called back again.

Illasit police border post handles many transit cases on a 24-hour basis, and operating with electricity can compromise security, a senior police officer said.
