I will not allow privatisation of Mombasa Port – President Ruto
President William Ruto has unequivocally declared that he will not allow Mombasa port to undergo privatisation.
Speaking during the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) National Governing Council meeting, President Ruto reaffirmed this stance and announced plans for the expansion of the port’s services to benefit South Sudan, Burundi, Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and Rwanda.
Mombasa Governor Abdullswamad Sherrif Nassir, echoed President Ruto’s sentiments, emphasising that the government would not privatise the crucial port of Mombasa.
Speaking on Monday, September 25, during the groundbreaking ceremony of the Mombasa County Aggregated Industrial Park in Miritini, Jomvu, Nassir highlighted concerns that Mombasa residents might not reap the benefits of privatisation.
“We are not opposed to development, but we speak on behalf of millions of residents who may not be able to speak for themselves. We ask what is in it for the people of Mombasa in the privatisation of their Port?” he questioned.
Governor Nassir made it clear that all leaders in Mombasa are united in opposing the privatization of the port.
While they support growth and development, they refuse to engage in a conversation where the interests of Mombasa residents have been sidelined.
Nassir has actively led an advocacy campaign against the privatization of the Port, citing a lack of consultation and due process by the Kenya Ports Authority in its recent advertisements.
However, on September 25, Benjamin Tayari, the Chairman of the Kenya Ports Authority board, clarified that the national government had no intentions to privatise critical port facilities in Mombasa and Lamu.
