Cargo movement hurdles at the Mombasa port will be sorted out in the next six months, Kenya Ports Authority chairman Danson Mungatana has said.
He said KPA is in talks with other government agencies including the Kenya Revenue Authority to ensure cargo clearance is done faster.
Mungatana said he is pushing for some amendments in the law to ensure to reduce the lengthy clearance process at the port.
"We are engaging the KRA at a high level. It is one of the most difficult government bodies to deal with," said Mungatana, who however expressed confidence that the talks will yield fruits.
He was speaking during a cocktail party help in his honour by the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers at The Mission to Seafarers offices in Mombasa.
