Among the areas which were affected by the blackout included Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu, Kakamega, Kisii, Migori, Embu and Meru among others.
A statement released by Kenya Power indicated two major lines supplying power to the affected areas were hit by a technical hitch thus resulting in the outage.
The power company went on to apologize to Kenyans for the inconvenience caused and promised to work around the clock to restore the services.
However, Kenyans trooped to social media to share their frustrations and inconveniences the blackout had caused.
While some expressed anger and called out the electricity company for not issuing a notice to prepare them psychologically, others chose to make fun of the situation.
Below we have featured some of the funniest reactions as shared on Twitter.
