Kenya courts mining investors
Issued on: Modified:
Kenyan business and government representatives are gathered in Nairobi for a conference aiming to attract more investment to the mining sector. In recent years most of Africa's new mines have opened in the west of the continent and east Africans want to attract more attention to their largely unexplored mineral deposits. Kenya has begun to redraft its colonial-era mining legislation to bring it up to date with modern investment practices. Cliff Otega, a Kenyan consultant who advises mining companies, is taking part in this week's Mining Business and Investment conference.
