A monkey has caused a countrywide power outage in the Kenya, a spokesperson of national electricity provider KenGen said Wednesday.

The monkey jumped onto the roof of the Gitaru power station in the capital, Nairobi, on Tuesday, fell onto a transformer and tripped it, said spokeswoman Zebby Sambu.

“The resulting blackout caused power outages across Kenya for several hours, since the plant generates about 80 per cent of the country’s electricity.

“The monkey was alive and had been handed over to the Kenyan Wildlife Service,” said Sambu.
