Kenya: Nuclear regulator expected by year-end
Kenya expects to have a nuclear regulatory agency in place by year-end as a draft law establishing the legal and regulatory framework for nuclear power progresses through parliament, according to Nuclear Power and Energy Agency chief executive Collins Juma. “The bill has gone through the first and second reading and is awaiting the third reading. We’re hopeful over the next two months we’ll have a regulator in place as well as a legal outline, taking us closer to actualising our nuclear goals,” Juma told the Africa Nuclear Business Platform conference in Nairobi on 15-17 October.
