Kenyan Leaders Want to Reroute Corridor to Save Wildlife

Isiolo leaders want the Lapsset Authority board to consider rerouting the project so as not to interfere with wildlife.

They want the Lamu Port-South Sudan-Ethiopia-Transport corridor to go through Garbatula in Boji, directly linking to Lodwar, and through Merti to Ethiopia.

Governor Godana Doyo, speaker Mohamed Tupi and MCAs said re-routing the project will also reduce costs to be incurred in setting up the corridor.

They said it will enhance eco-tourism, resolve border conflicts between Isiolo and neighboring counties and open up the Northern Rangeland for development.
