Shock as UHURU shows RAILA the middle finger as he tells him the SGR will stop in Naivasha; it will not reach Kisumu as he had told Luos

Saturday April 27, 2019-Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga has been dealt an embarrassing blow after it emerged that the Standard Gauge Railway will not reach Kisumu as had been anticipated.

In an interview, Transport and Infrastructure CS James Macharia said that the Government has halted plans to extend the Standard Gauge Railway from Naivasha to Kisumu.

Macharia stated that the Government would instead rehabilitate the old railway line to facilitate the movement of goods.

This comes in the wake of President Kenyatta's trip to China accompanied by ODM leader Raila Odinga seeking a Ksh368 billion loan from China to extend the SGR to Kisumu.

Raila had last week assured his people Luo Nyanza that he and President Uhuru Kenyatta will be travelling to China this week to seek more funds to extend the SGR from Naivasha to Kisumu, but from the look of things, that won’t be happening anytime soon.
