Mombasa-Nairobi Oil Pipeline To Be Launched By December

 Charles Keter, Energy Cabinet Secretary has said that the oil pipeline from Mombasa to Nairobi could be commissioned as early as Christmas.

The State House said the pipeline will reduce traffic on the Mombasa-Nairobi highway as well as significantly improve stability and supplies in Nairobi and Kisumu and its environs.
“This will ease congestion on Mombasa-Nairobi highway and ensure we have very stable petroleum cover,” said Mr. Keter Friday.
The pipeline, which is almost complete, was among issues discussed when President of Kenya met officials in the energy sector. 
The CS also stated plans to roll out low-cost liquid petroleum gas were at an advanced stage and was also set to launch by Christmas.
He said this will also increase penetration of alternative forms of energy to charcoal and kerosene, which he said the government wants to phase out in the long term.
President Kenyatta stressed upon the road repairs and the fixing of the damaged Kainuk bridge in Turkana added the statement. The bridge collapsed recently following heavy rains that have been pounding the country.
