    My pre-paid meter has packed up and is stuck at 18.5 units for the past two weeks. Am getting power just like normal so it's no cause for immediate worry for me.
    Now good folks, what are the consequences of enjoying this free electricity since it isn't my own fault?
    Should I notify Kenya Power or keep mum about it.
    Is there any way they can notice am getting power without paying for it?

    You should get it looked in to

    Interesting anomaly , are you sure the meter is dead the display has packed up, maybe it's actually counting down and just not updating the display.

    What's normally your average consumption per day (helps debunk or confirm above theory 18 units will run me for 2 to 3 days but I overhead someone say they can survive on 20 units for 2 weeks)

    My household normally consumes 3 units per day so the 18,5 units should have been depleted way before the new year .

    They are very efficient. I use 70units a month, yet I am only home in the evenings 7 days a week

    Lucky bastard, 3 units per day and free power.

    Anyway please report it, they will raise a ticket but they won't send guys, the ticket is just to cushion yourself when they eventually come coz you will tell them it's their fault.

    In the meantime you continue enjoying free power

    Wewe kama hufanyi kplc mita ikiharibika ni shida yako, grandpa meter iliharibika 1year ago huwa analipa 500 and he shares with over 60 single rental rooms. So mind your own business
