Lamu’s Ndeu village has no electricity despite hosting a substation supplying power to neighbouring communities. None of the households, in the village hosting 150 families, have been connected to electricity since December 2015 when the substation was put up.

Nation.africa established that no house had electricity connection despite efforts by locals to fill forms to have their homes supplied with power.
