Lamu woman rep to move to High Court to stop proposed Sh200 billion coal plant

Lamu woman representative Shakila Abdalla is planning to move to the High Court to stop the proposed Sh200 billion coal plant from being set up in the county.

Abdalla said, however, she would only go to court if the National Environment Tribunal, which was in Lamu on a fact-finding mission on the project, fails to consider the health hazard.
