Tullow oil Kenya sued by Turkana residents for 'envrionmental violence'

Some 43 residents from Turkana County, among them children, have sued British oil explorer Tullow Kenya, seeking compensation and a Sh284 billion environmental bond from the company for what they have termed “environmental violence”, in the latest setback for the oil giant. The residents Wednesday moved to the Environment and Land Court in Lodwar, accusing the oil firm of destroying their environment and their livelihoods through hazardous environmental activity and other acts and omissions. https://www.businessdailyafrica.com/bd/economy/tullow-oil-sued-for-sh284bn-over-environment-violence-4547684

          It's important for companies to take responsibility for their actions and make sure they're not harming communities or the environment.

                A bold decision for the locals to sue Tullow Oil PLC for environment destruction. @Tullow must be responsible for their actions, compensate the people and stop fossil fuels production.
