Kenya Power has currently made a huge loss in the period to June 2020, according to an unaudited report by the Treasury.

KenGen, however, reports an escalated profit of Sh10.5 billion from the one it made in June 2019. Its revenues are fairly relied from Kenya Power but even though of the debt it’s owed, it still made a fair share of profit.

In spite of the released statistics, the results of the two power companies are yet to be made official. The final results are anticipated in December 2020 for KenGen and January 2021 for Kenya Power.

In accordance to the reports made by the Treasury, KenGen has revenues of Sh46.52 billion in the period to June 2020. In contrast to Sh45.97 billion it made in the period to June 2019.
