The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

The Lamu coal plant is to be set up on 985 acres and is to gen­er­ate 981.5MW of elec­tric­ity. Ini­tially, it is ex­pected to burn coal im­ported from South Africa and later coal from Kenya’s Mui Basin in Ki­tui county. The project will em­ploy 1,400 Chi­nese work­ers, as well as many lo­cals. The EIA re­port led to the res­ig­na­tion of Trade ex­ec­u­tive Samia Omar who said the project is harm­ful.
