Kenya will go alone on the construction of Lamu-Lokichar crude oil pipeline after Uganda decided to build the other pipeline through its southern borders.
The decision was reached by President Uhuru Kenyatta and President Yoweri Museveni at the end of the 13th Northern Corridor Integration Projects Summit held in Kampala, Uganda.
Kenya decided to pull out of the negotiations with Uganda on construction of a single pipeline after talks dragged paralyzing preparations for the construction of Kenya’s oil pipeline.
The two countries, however, agreed to continue cooperating on petroleum matters citing they are new to the industry.
In a communique read at the end of the Summit, it pointed out on milestones made in integration projects.
Kenya took pride in the ongoing construction of the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR).
Tanzania President failed to turn up for the summit.
