A lobby group from the Coast region has issued a two weeks ultimatum to the government to explain why they are privatising the Kenya Ports Authority putting thousands of jobs and businesses at risk for the locals.

According to Taireni Amidzichenda, a lobby group, transferring the inland container deport to Nairobi and setting up the dry port in Naivasha was an evil plan to kill the economy of the coast.

According to the group, the forceful removal of former KPA Managing Director Catherine Muturi was a proper orchestrated plan by cartels to deny the coastal people their rights to manage their resources. The region’s current economy was at risk as most of the developments and businesses associated to the port shall be meaningless in the near future.
