British oil firm Tullow has resumed operations in Turkana, with transportation of crude oil to Mombasa going on smoothly for the fourth day yesterday.

A row between Tullow and the residents over jobs and security disrupted transportation for 60 days. The row was ended in a deal signed last week.

“We have set up a good mechanism through which we will resolve problems,” said Turkana South MP James Lomenen.

He said the company and the government will ensure residents are involved.

"Oil is a national resource but as residents of Turkana we have been marginalised. Our people should benefit from such resources," Lomene said.
