Kyuso limestone mining plant in Kitui, Kenya

The Kyuso limestone mining plant that was given the green light in 2014 was later abandoned and has not since been taken up or mentioned by the Athi River Mining Company.

Recently, the Kitui government also stopped mining of limestone at Twimuma, in the Kyuso sub-county, suggesting that there will not be any further progress of the initial US$285 million plant.

US$ 285m limestone mining plant to be set up in Kenya

Kenya’s Athi River Mining Company (ARM) has been given the go-ahead to set up a US$ 285m limestone mining plant in Ngaie, Kyuso district.

Minerals executive George Mulatya was pleased when confirming the reports and he said the cement firm is expected to set up a clinker and cement manufacturing plant which will in return create 7,000 jobs and give the Government US$ 3m in annual revenue.

Mr. Mulatya pointed out that although 2,000 residents will be displaced due to the massive project, the county government will safeguard the rights of the residents, especially on land matters and compensation.

ARM Cement is one of the largest cement manufacturers in Kenya. It is also a leading manufacturer of sodium silicate, lime, industrial minerals, formulated fertilizers and special building products in East and Southern Africa.
