Popular Kenyan singer, Akothee, got one of her biggest shocks this month thanks to the electricity bill sent by Kenya Power. The power distributer had billed her Ksh791,000 for her house in Rongo and was told she needed to pay it urgently. Her other house in Mombasa had its bills rise from Ksh15,000 to Ksh100,000.
Akothee posted this rant on her Instagram account:
