Residents of Kinangop in Nyandarua county have issued a 14-day ultimatum to a foreign company working on a 61-megawatt wind power project.

They want the firm to leave the area. During a meeting held in Magumu on Monday, the residents directed staff of the Kinangop Wind Park Project to stop operations. They said the Sh13 billion project will not benefit them. Kinangop MP Stephen Kinyanjui said farmers were conned into the “unworkable” project.

He called for the revocation of the project licence. The firm’s CEO James Wakaba denied the allegations and said several meetings were held before the project began. “We have heard the concerns of the people and we are ready to go back to the drawing board and address the issues raised,” he said.
