Kenya shuts down production of voltage stabilizers

Kenya has shut down production and shuttered all its distribution centers, according to a statement on its website.

The country’s energy and food ministry said it was “reluctant to give in to pressure” to produce the devices, but added that it will continue to make them in small quantities to meet its needs.

The government did not say how many devices it had produced.

Kenyans consume roughly a third of all imported electricity from Denmark.

The energy ministry said the import tariffs were set by the Danish Government.
