The parties met in Nairobi a week ago. Also in the talks were Kenya Pipeline Company, Kenya Airports Authority and the Maritime Authority, which also own land there. KR, one of the biggest landlords in Kisumu, owns over 200 acres of lakefront land. KPA, which took over management of the port from KR in 2017, owns 100 acres in the same area.
