KPC compensates Kibwezi oil spill victims. Residents of Thange Valley in Kibwezi East Constituency have begun receiving compensation from the Kenya Pipeline Company (KPC) for a 2015 oil leak on its aging 39-year-old pipeline.

The compensation began in March after KPC’s insurer CIC insurance finalised assessments on the first batch of claims made by 278 residents.
