President Uhuru Delivers, Lamu To Receive New Ship On Thursday Under Uhuru Launch

All set for tomorrow's launch of the new Port of Lamu by President Uhuru Kenyatta who will receive the first ship to dock at Kenya's second commercial port which is now set to become the biggest port in sub-Saharan Africa, beating the Port of Durban in South Africa.

The Maesrk ship Mv CAP Carmel will call at the Lamu Port before departing for the Port of Salalah in Oman.

The Ksh310 billion Lamu Port is massive and is positioning Kenya as the main transshipment hub for the region.

As a deep water port, Lamu will be able to accomodate the largest cargo ships in the world, meaning huge cargo volumes which will bring more jobs and wealth for the region and country at large.

President Uhuru Kenyatta will grace the -busiest Port in the world in the near future after Shenzhen, Singapore and Shanghai, when fully operational.

Thousands upon thousands of opportunities will be created to the previously economically dormant coastal County. A high influx of thousands of people is anticipated with concerns on overstretching of the existing amenities raised. Rapid growth will ensue.
