Activists Demand Transparency on Kenya's Oil Contract with China

Amid the excitement of Kenya joining the list of oil-producing countries, some civil society groups are accusing the government of keeping oil deals with a Chinese company secret. Activists say they want to know whether the country is getting the best deal for its resource after Kenya's inaugural shipment of crude oil travelled to ChemChina in August.
