The government of Uhuru Kenyatta through the treasury CS Ukur Yatani is clear that the country doesn't have the capacity to run the Lamu port. According to CS Yatani, the country is considering privatization of the company to a Dubai firm in the name of Dubai Port World.

The CS Treasury and Uhuru Kenyatta have been under heavy attacks from Kenya Kwanza leaders of selling the port. This means the port of Lamu is also going to be sold to Dubai Port World to manage it something that's heavily exposing the country.
Lamu Port is already in the line of privatization yet the port has been in operations before without experiencing problems. It's interesting that Uhuru Kenyatta administration can say they are not able to run the port at the moment a reason it's being sold.
This is shameful that the country is not able to run the Lamu port yet it's a port that has been running for decades. As always, let's wait and see of what unfolds for it's clear we truly live in very interesting times given the troubles facing this Uhuru Kenyatta administration.
