President should ensure community benefit from oil, Turkana county Jubilee leaders

Share this:
Jubilee leaders in Turkana County have asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to ensure that residents directly benefit from the oil that was discovered in the arid and semi-arid region if re-elected on October 17.
The leaders who on Monday began campaigns for fresh presidential elections to ensure that Mr. Uhuru gets more votes than the National Super Alliance (Nasa) flag bearer Raila Odinga, pointed out that there are high expectations before oil hit the market.
Turkana South MP James Lomenen said that the close to a billion barrels of recoverable oil deposit will be what the country will be looking at to finance national budgets as well as settle debts.
