National Assembly letter on Coal Activities in Kenya

On 11th June, deCOALonize campaign led by Greenpeace Africa wrote letters to all 416 Members of Parliament challenging the Treasury budget allocation for the Lamu coal plant and Kitui coal mining – proposed as a public-private partnership agreement. The letter also demanded the MPs to take up the matter with relevant stakeholders and above all put the sovereign rights and wishes of the people of Kenya above all external and selfish private-sector considerations and safeguard our nation from unbefitting policy transfers.

On 27th June, National Assembly wrote back acknowledging receipt and saying the matter was now before the Budgets and Appropriations Committee in accordance with Article 221(4) of the Kenyan Constitution. See attached the letter.
