Beautiful Weather = No Electricity?

So it seems that KESC is completely utilizing the beautiful weather that we’ve been having for the past week by shutting down the power supply regularly. According to Dawn, while the CEO of KESC was briefing the President on it’s “improved” performance…a lot of places in Karachi were without electricity.

In my area the electricity is playing hide and seek. We have no electricity for 2 hours…then we have a 45 minute respite and then we’d be without electricity again. You’d think it was running hurdles while it was gone and is taking a break when it comes back on.

According to the CEO of KESC;

The vision of the KESC management is to win consumers’ trust by providing excellent service.

Big words from someone who has yet to show any of the promised improvement.

    I checked their website out – – to see if there is a way to contact the CEO, this Frank Scherschmidt guy, and tell him what bullshit he is spewing but the Contact Us link is aparently ‘coming soon’ so good luck with that…

    Can we stop beating the dead horse. Go around and ask public not to steal electricity.

    The KESC problem has been entrenched in Karachi since easily the past ten years! The new KESC CEO Frank Some-schmidt is no magician. We gotta give him some time and also change our own attitudes towards electricity stealers
