Resolve Turkana insecurity, Wetang'ula head tells Uhuru

What you need to know:

  • Since Wednesday, the residents have blocked five oil trucks destined for Changamwe Refinery in Mombasa at Kalemngorok on the Lokichar-Kapenguria highway.

  • On Friday, they broke into Ngamia 8 oil storage sites where President Uhuru launched the historic Early Oil Pilot Scheme by flagging off oil trucks to make Kenya an oil producing country.

  • Turkana South MP James Lomenen and his Turkana East counterpart Mohammed Ali Lokiru said oil operations and transportation would be halted until the fresh demands are addressed.

Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetang’ula has asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to urgently address demands by Turkana leaders and residents and bring to an end protests that have paralysed oil operations and transportation in the county.
