DAILY POST: Was SGR just another scam by Jubilee? RUTO now reveals they have gone back to the old railway as he pledges to pump billions to upgrade it



Friday
November 30, 2018
– Deputy President William Ruto has revealed
that the Jubilee Government had embarked on another railway project but
not the Standard Gauge one.
Speaking at the Nakuru
International Investment Conference, Ruto noted that plans were underway to
upgrade the meter gauge railway for it to serve the public better.
This, he said, would
improve accessibility of various towns in Kenya.
“We are engaged in
refurbishing the meter gauge railway through Nakuru to Eldoret to Kitale,”
Ruto stated.
In addition, the DP said all
the railway projects will tie in the fulfilment of the Big Four Agenda,
urging towns to position themselves strategically to benefit from them.
“The challenges we face
and must overcome are located in the same place as opportunities we must seize
to grow our economy, improve our society.”
“The pursuit of a fuller,
inclusive economy and a shared prosperity will lift communities and secure
wellbeing of generations,” he said.
This comes despite the
drumming up of the multi-billion Standard Gauge Railway built by Jubilee whose
benefits and profits Kenya is yet to realize.
