Lamu port to get Sh10bn for berths, says PS

The government will allocate a further Sh10 billion for construction of the first three berths at Lamu port in the next financial year, Transport Principal Secretary Irungu Nyakera has said.

When the project started in the 2016/2017 financial year, it was also allocated Sh10 billion.
