Kenya: Standard Gauge Railway Launch Set for May 31

Nairobi — President Uhuru Kenyatta is set to launch the Mombasa-Nairobi Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) line on May 31 in a ceremony to be attended by senior officials from the Chinese Government.

State House Spokesperson Manoah Esipisu said China will be sending a delegation comprising members of its State Council who will include two ministers and a vice-minister for the launch.

"China who provided the funds through loans that the SGR was built will be sending a senior delegation of the State Council at that launch," Esipisu said Sunday during his weekly press briefing at the State House.
