Kenya to Repeal Local-Ownership Rules for Mining, Minister Says

Kenya will repeal a rule requiring at least 35 percent local ownership in mining projects to help speed up investment, Mining Secretary Najib Balala said.

The government in October published a gazette-notice stating Kenya citizens are entitled to the minimum shareholding and requested affected companies including Base Resources Ltd. and Goldplat Plc for proposals on how they will comply.
