Kenya's state-owned oil firm to dual list on Nairobi and London Stock Exchanges

The announcement was made by President Kenyatta shortly after he rang the bell to mark the opening of trading at the LSE

The head-of-state made the announcement shortly after he rang the bell to mark the beginning of trading at the LSE in what was the first day of his official visit to the United Kingdom.

The move is meant to enable the State-owned oil marketer to raise funds for financing emerging opportunities in the energy sector.
