Kenya wants own internet cable

This page in:

The BBC reports that Kenya is planning its own internet cable, in another blow to the much hoped-for East African Submarine cable System (EASSy). The project hasn't received funding yet, but would extend from Mombasa to Fujairah in the Gulf of Oman.

"The cable network that will connect East Africa to the rest of the world will also serve Tanzania, Uganda, Sudan, Rwanda, Burundi, Ethiopia and Somalia," said the statement [from the Kenyan president's office], which gave no timetable for the project.
