Lamu, Kilindini Ports Will Not Compete, Says Joho

[The Star]

The construction of Lamu port will not eat up the market share of Mombasa port, Transport assistant minister Hassan Joho has said. Joho was speaking at the Kenya Ports Authority headquarters during the familiarisation tour of the port facility since his appointment a month ago. "Lamu port targets completely a different market and there will be no business clash with the port of Mombasa. It's targeting a brand new market in the Northern Corridor including Ethiopia and south Sudan," Joho said.
