According to news reaching us, it is reported that some section of the new standard gage railroad has been damaged at Mariakani area where it passes through.
In any case, Kenya Railway Managing Director Atanas Maina termed the damage to the gauge rail as “nothing major” despite the fact that he could not determine the degree of the damage.
“Police are investigating what happened but we view this as a malicious
act,” said Mr.Maina.
President Uhuru Kenyatta is expected to officially launch the railroad utilization on Wednesday.
Mr Maina said it’s right on time to close whether the damage was planned to sabotage the dispatching of the SGR.
