Referendum mood scaring away investors

22 August 2014, 11:40 Mbungu Harrison

Mombasa - The calls for a National referendum by the opposition side of government is uncalled for and is largely slowing down economical development, Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) Chairman Danson Mungatana has said.

Speaking at the Kenya Architectural Association, Mungatana said the election mood is scaring away investors from the country and may affect tourism sector which is now picking up from the just ended low season.

“In many developed countries, referendums are conducted towards election. Elections mood two years after the general election will slow down development activities in the country,” claimed Mungatana.

Mungatana has raised fears that Kenya Ports Authority operations will be derailed once the referendum campaigns take effect.

“People should come together and speak in one voice. Some members of parliament will only be technically appearing in Parliament and rushing for campaigns; this will not give them time to carry on their mandate,” he observed.

The KPA chair has appealed to Kenyans and professionals to enlighten Kenyans on the impacts of going into politics especially when the country is recovering from poor economic growth.

Meanwhile, Kenya Port Authority is set to get an economical boost once the construction of two berths is completed.

Mungatana said the construction of berth number 20 and 21 first phase through in partnership with a Japanese company will be complete by 2015 and will increase the cargo turn around in the Mombasa Port by 1.2 million containers per year.

He said the construction will cost KES 23 Billion.

“We have been following this closely and are anticipating that by November 2015, the work will have been completed,” Mungatana said.
