The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Coast -

Lamu lead­ers on Tues­day threat­ened to go to court to stop the planned Sh200 bil­lion coal-fired power plant.

Woman rep­re­sen­ta­tive Shakilla Ab­dalla and Deputy Gov­er­nor Eric Mugo also threat­ened to in­sti­tute le­gal ac­tion against Na­tional Lands Com­mis­sion chair­man Muham­mad Swazuri. They ac­cused him of fail­ing to con­sult and in­volve the county in ac­qui­si­tion of land for devel­op­ment projects. They said they would no tal­low the pro­ject, as there was no con­sen­sus be­tween the NLC, in­vestors, the county and landown­ers.
