A Port in Kenya

Anyone hear about the port the Kenya Government is planning to build on the east coast

of Kenya.? Or am I the only one that has read this, or is this old news already !?

You mean at Lamu Island.

Thanks sandi

Yes that is the article I read.

Hmm with the "biggest port in East Africa" going to be built , your know the cruise ships will becoming.

Guess if I ever want to go from Mombassa to Lamu,before commercialism comes then better get serious about it .

With Somalia and the pirates within striking distance no cruise ship will come near such a port.

Kenya needs to spend this money elsewhere.

CHSL - that was the same comment I made to a friend the other day... pirates/boats - don't go together.

Nor do they need a repeat of the likes of the oil spill as the Exxon Valdez (Alaska) many years ago.
