Mombasa Dredging Stopped Over Contract Breach

On July 12, the National Environment Management Authority (Nema) of Kenya stopped the dredging of Likoni channel because of alleged breaching of environmental constraints and harming wildlife. Dredging began on the project in June after years of planning, and will be stopped for two weeks to assess damage and impacts from the presence of debris from the project near the shore, which was to have been deposited 50 miles offshore, according to the master plan. The dredging contractor is Van Oord Dredging and Marine Contractors.
