According to Business Daily, the head of the Kenya Nuclear Energy Agency, Justus Wabuyabo, said that preparations for the tender for the construction of a nuclear power plant in the Kilifi region have been accelerated. He added that they plan to start building the complex in 2027.

For the realization of the project from six to 10 years, Wabuyabo emphasized that it will take six to 10 years to implement the project. The facility, which upon completion will have a capacity of about 1.000 megawatts, is planned to meet the needs of Kenyans.
