Kenya land-grabs around $24 billion port project: president

Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta says a vast coastal zone nearly the size of Luxembourg around a proposed multi-billion dollar port area had been stolen, fuelling a wave of massacresKenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta said Thursday a vast coastal zone nearly the size of Luxembourg around a proposed multi-billion dollar port area had been stolen, fuelling a wave of massacres. Last month over 100 people were slaughtered in a wave of attacks, largely claimed by Somalia’s Al-Qaeda-linked Shebab militants, although Kenyatta has previously said those killings were the work of “local political networks.” The area, near Kenya’s restive border with war-torn Somalia, surrounds a planned $24 billion (18 billion euro) port project zone intended to serve nations across east Africa, including oil pipelines to South Sudan.
