Kenya responds over reports of disconnecting electricity supply to DRC Embassy

Foreign Affairs PS, Korir Sing'oei denies claims that Kenya cut electricity supply to the Embassy of the Democratic Republic of Congo over a dispute

Foreign Affairs PS, Korir Sing’oei denies claims that Kenya cut electricity supply to the Embassy of the Democratic Republic of Congo over a dispute.

In response to online reports that were shared on social media, Sing’oei termed the reports as unfounded.

The Foreign Affairs PS also urged the public to disregard the information that was being circulated by some bloggers.

“Unfounded, baseless, and idle chatter,” the PS responded.

This comes after reports were shared online alleging that the government of Kenya cut off the electricity of the DRC embassy after the foreign nation recalled its ambassador.

This followed the dispute that emerged between Kenya and DRC over the controversial press briefing that was held by DRC opposition leaders over President Felix Tshisekedi’s regime.

“A few days ago there was a diplomatic disagreement between Kenya and DRC. In response, Kenya allegedly cut off the electricity supply to the embassy in Nairobi and removed the tarmac from the road leading to the embassy.

“This embassy is located on Karura Avenue in Muthaiga, near the Belgium embassy,” one of the online reports read in part.

Kenya and DRC have shared a frosty relationship in recent months. 

Notably, barely a week ago, Priime Cabinet Secretary flew to DRC to hold negotiations with officials from Tshisekedi’s government.

It was noted that the talks centered around restoring bilateral corporations between the two countries.

During his visit, Mudavadi also delivered a special message from President William Ruto to Tshisekedi.

“Additionally, the Prime Cabinet Secretary engaged in constructive discussions with H.E. Christophe Lutundula Apala Pen Apala, the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Democratic Republic of Congo, focusing on various issues of mutual interest.

“These bilateral discussions took place in a friendly and cordial atmosphere, resulting in the establishment of three key agreements aimed at strengthening cooperation between Kenya and the DRC,” read the statement in part.
