|NAIROBI， Jan. 6 (Xinhua) -- Consumers in Kenya are bracing for higher electricity tariffs following failed rains in the October-December 2016 season that saw water levels in hydropower generation dams fall considerably.
The tariffs， which rose in December last year， are expected to sustain the upward trend as the Meteorological Department forecasts that dry weather conditions will prevail in most parts of the country in the coming months.
"The average retail tariffs slightly increased in December due to increase in fuel cost charge occasioned by a rise in petrol thermal power in the energy mix by three percent. This was mainly due to low water levels at Sondu-Miriu and Seven Forks dams necessitating running of petrol based thermal power plants to cover the short-fall，" said the Energy Regulatory Commission in a statement Friday.
Kenya in 2015 injected 280 megawatts (MW) of cheaper geothermal energy to the national grid， pushing up installed capacity from 1，765 MW in June 2013 to 2，327 MW in December 2016.
The increase had reduced the country's reliance on expensive diesel generators， shifting the energy mix from 53 percent hydro， 25 percent thermal and 20 percent geothermal in 2013 to 41 percent hydro， 13 percent thermal and 40 percent geothermal in 2016.
The low level of water in hydropower plants has， however， affected generation from the source， prompting increased production from expensive thermal sources.
Last month， households that consumed 200 kilowatt hour (kWh) paid 34 U.S. dollars compared to 31 dollars in December 2012.
Fixed charge for domestic consumers during the month rose to 1.5 dollars from 1.2 dollars while the energy charge per kWh for those consuming above 50 units increased to 0.13 dollars from 0.08 dollars.
Analysts say a rise in electricity tariffs adds burden to consumers and sets them up for higher inflation， which now stands at 6.4 percent.
Already， Kenyans in the capital Nairobi and other urban centers are experiencing water shortages due to falling water levels in dams.
"Life is becoming tougher each day， the cost of transport， food items and education has gone up making things harder for people with large families like us. Last month I paid a bill of 40 dollars from 25 that I normally pay. While I blamed it on my five children who were home for holiday， it is now clear the higher tariffs were the major cause，" banker Emmanuel Makuno， a Nairobi resident， said Friday.
The Ministry of Energy， however， has allayed fears of a rise in power tariffs in the coming months， saying the government is keen on lowering the tariffs.

BEIJING, Dec. 7 (Xinhua) -- China's political advisors met Thursday to discuss ways to inherit and develop drama of ethnic minorities.
The bi-weekly consultation session was chaired by Yu Zhengsheng human race nmd black , chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.
Political advisors said drama of ethnic minorities is an important part of Chinese culture and plays a significant role in promoting national solidarity.
The government should strengthen its support to the development of the art with ethnic features in policy and finance. The government purchase of public cultural services should be enhanced so as to encourage drama groups to perform in communities, political advisors said.
They also suggest deeper research on the drama of ethnic minorities.
The consultation sessions are used by political advisors to study major issues with experts and officials.
NEW DELHI, Aug. 20 (Xinhua) -- A day after 23 people were killed and more than 90 others injured in a train accident in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh adidas nmd r1 triple black , Indian Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu Sunday asked the railways to fix responsibility by the end of the day.
Prabhu directed Chairman of Railway Board A.K. Mittal, the top executive official of the Indian Railways, to fix responsibility for the derailment of Kalinga Utkal Express adidas nmd r1 uk , based on prima facie probe.
"Will not allow laxity in operations by the (Railway) Board. Have directed CRB (chairman of the Railway Board) to fix responsibility on prima facie evidence by end of day," he tweeted.
The train was on its way to the holy town of Haridwar in the northern state of Uttarakhand from the eastern state of Odisha when 13 of its coaches derailed near Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh Saturday evening.
Conflicting claims from officials indicate that a human error may have been the cause of the accident, with locals also claiming that maintenance work was going on the tracks that railway officials failed to convey to the train's driver.
But this is not the first time that such a fatal accident has taken place. Official statistics reveal over 580 train mishaps adidas nmd chukka for sale , both minor and major, took place in the past five years in India, out of which more than 50 percent occurred due to derailments.
The worst accident occurred on November 20 adidas nmd r2 primeknit white , 2016, when an express train from the central state of Madhya Pradesh to the eastern state of Bihar's capital Patna derailed near Kanpur city in Uttar Pradesh, claiming the lives of 150 people and injuring a similar number.
"A fracture on the railway tracks was said to be the main cause behind that accident. This clearly indicates the need for urgent overhaul of the tracks adidas nmd city sock uk , which have gone through wear and tear over the years, since being laid," a senior Indian Railways official said.
