Qatar to fund new Kenyan port

Qatar to fund new Kenyan port

Costing US$ 3.5 billion, the port will act as an entry port for new trade corridors to Ethiopia as well as the northern regions of Kenya. It will also help release some of the pressure on Mombasa, which has become severely congested as it is also used by neighbouring countries such as Uganda.

According to one report, Qatar will lease about 40,000 ha south of Lamu for the growing of crops such as rice.
