Lamu is faced with a tough decision on whether to continue conserving it or allow coal mining in the area. The coal mine is to provide the needed power as per our vision 2030. If we go ahead and embrace the coal mining, we will be placing our environment in crisis. The environment impacts to be experienced is far much harmful than the benefits. UNESCO saw good in Lamu but that may be lost very soon. And once again, we are at logger heads with our politicians for the sake of safe environment for our fellow Kenyans. The old town of Lamu is about to have a very bad turn of events if the environmentalists or the government fail to stop the coal plant to be built there.
