A monkey caused a three-hour nationwide blackout in Kenya Tuesday, officials said, NBC News reported.
Kenya Electricity Generation Company (KenGen) said in a statement that a monkey climbed onto the roof of the Gitaru Power Station and fell onto a transformer, tripping it.
Power was restored after three hours. Kenyan businesses regularly complain that power cuts and unreliable supplies make them uncompetitive and hurt growth.
