Kenya may build its own pipeline to transport oil from the northern Turkana region to a port at the coast if a proposal to build one jointly with Uganda falls through, Kenyan Energy Principal Secretary Joseph Njoroge said.

"Whatever the outcome, we will build an oil pipeline, whether we are together with the Ugandans or not," Njoroge said in a phone interview Wednesday from Lokichar in northern Kenya.
