Currently the SGR(Standard Gauge Railway) project shareholders are holding talks with the president Hon Uhuru Kenyatta. The talks are for the Nairobi Kampala Stretch which is to commence soon.
Though there have been a number of reasons why the chinese firm (that is currently developing the railway) is behind course, the president and the CS transport seem confident about starting the Nairobi stretch. It might be a reason to taste the waters to see if the hurdles faced at Makueni county will be recurrent and God-willing how to solve the hurdles.
The president was inspecting the Voi stretch and also attended the brief.
