The Resource Centre wrote to KenGen highlighting the concerns of the El-Molo that the company has failed to engage the community and provide sufficient information regarding the proposed project, and specifically asked for information concerning the following:

  • Any steps taken to engage with the El-Molo community, including details of the persons involved, the date(s) of such engagements, and a summary of the outcomes of such processes.
  • Whether KenGen accepts that there has been insufficient engagement with this community concerning the Marsabit project.
