British company Tullow Oil is under fire for wasteful spending related to community projects intended to balance the damage done by the company’s oil extraction in the Turkana region of Kenya.

Local campaigners say the projects are worth less than half the amount Tullow claims it has spent on its corporate and social responsibility projects, with residents blaming poor engagement and corruption for the projects’ limited impact.
