President Kenyatta commissions Lamu Port

President Uhuru Kenyatta has commissioned the first three berths of the new Lamu Port.

The newly built Port of Lamu code-named Lamu South Sudan Ethiopia Transport (LAPSSET) Corridor also received its maiden cargo vessel from Denmark today as operations officially kicked-off.

The Grandiose Port has the capabilities to handle post-panamax ships from the international shipping lines that ply the Indian Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea.

This now makes Lamu the focal point of a massive regional transshipment hub capable of accommodating goods being transported by sea, rail, land and air.
