Pictures Of The Long Awaited Lamu Port Set To Be Launched Tomorrow By President Kenyatta

The first berth of the long awaited Lamu port is set to be launched tomorrow 20th May by president Uhuru Kenyatta at the Lamu Port in Lamu County.

The deep water port has a capacity to handle giant ships than any other port in the East Africa Region. The newly constructed port will serve as the country's transport link with neighboring countries like South Sudan and Ethiopia. The Lamu port, which is critical to president Kenyatta's infrastructure development engine, will dock its first crane ship tomorrow.

According to the Presidential Delivery Unit in Kenya (PPDU) 100 youth from Lamu have been recruited to work in the various units of the port. Over 400 youths have been offered scholarship relevant to ports operation. President Kenyatta's government has also lined up 600 more youth for future recruitment at the port.

In his statement seen on PPDU Twitter page ahead of the launch tomorrow, the president congratulated all the men and women who worked to transform the beautiful port into reality. From the Twitter page, a large rubber tyred granty crane has already been dispatched to the Lamu port ahead of tomorrow's launch.

Here is a glimpse of the port set to be launched in pictures.
