According to K-Electric spokesperson, “Power thieves are urged to abstain from stealing electricity and to regularise their connections through legal meters as soon as possible.

 

Failure to do so will result in serious penal consequences including disconnection along with prosecution that can lead to penalty as high as Rs 6 million and imprisonment of up to 7 years in line with the Criminal Law (Amendment) Act of 2016.”

 

KE also seeks support from the community to help curb the menace of electricity theft. Reports of power theft may be made by calling at 118 or 021-99000 or through KE’s Facebook and Twitter pages or anonymously via email at [email protected].
