BUSINESS & DISCOVERY

Kenya: Implications of oil find



Activists have described the historic discovery of oil in Turkana County as one that would develop this arid area of Kenya that has suffered marginalisation over the years.
Lion Lepalo, Executive Director of Save Lake Turkana Project, a Non-Governmental Organisation that has championed opposition to a planned hydro power project that could strain water flow into Lake Victoria from River Omo, said on Monday that the discovery would benefit the locals in provision of social amenities.
"We will have provision of services that will mean schools, networks, bursaries; it will mean everything that an ordinary Kenyan will need for their lives to move on," Lepalo told Capital FM News.
He however said the government should put in place strategies that would ensure community involvement as well as conserve the environment there.
"It will not be without hiccups, but once the community is sensitised and brought on board and people like us are involved as well, I don't foresee a problem but the government will have to educate the masses and let them know what is at stake here and how they can benefit," he emphasised.
He added that the government should not sit and make decisions from Nairobi without involving the locals who would now have a chance to rebuild their lives.
On the concerns that this could heighten insecurity in an already volatile county that is characterised by cattle rustling and infighting over scarce resources, Lepalo said that was a "small issue" that the government could handle.
"We have had such discoveries in Africa like in Nigeria where people in the Niger Delta up to date have always had arguments that their needs have not been met but I hope our country will not have the same problems because we have learnt from other places," he said.
The discovery was announced by President Mwai Kibaki on Monday afternoon during the release of government performance contracting results in Nairobi.
"Tullow Oil which has been prospecting for oil in block 10BB in Turkana County discovered oil in Ngamia 1 Well at a depth of between 846 and 1,041 meters," the president announced.
"To establish the commercial viability of this oil, they are to drill multiple wells. This is the first time Kenya has made such a discovery and it is very good news for our country," said the Head of State.
However, it would take up to three years to commercialise the oil according to Energy Minister Kiraitu Murung

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
