SHOCK as RAILA ODINGA finally reveals why exactly the Chinese Government denied him and UHURU the 368 billion to extend SGR to Kisumu

Tuesday May 14, 2019 - African Union Envoy for Infrastructure, Raila Odinga, has finally broken his silence over the stalled expansion of the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) to Kisumu.

Speaking during a working tour of various projects in Kisumu, Raila sought to settle the disquiet over the expansion plans of the SGR from Naivasha maintaining that it was not a lost cause.

He even went ahead to reveal why China denied him and President Uhuru Kenyatta the Sh368 billion loan that they were seeking to extend the SGR to Kisumu.

According to Raila, China wanted Kenya to prove feasibility of the SGR line to Kisumu as a prerequisite for a loan from China Export-Import Bank, which Kenya had not done, and as a result it was difficult to get the loan from China.
“I was waiting for the opportune time to give a report on our trip to China and it has come with the launch of this project (Special Economic Zone - SEZ).”

“Media has been awash with biased reports that we failed to secure the SGR loan, which is very negative, false and unfair," he conveyed.

“It is just a matter of time before we get the monumental infrastructure.”

“We have not even done a feasibility study to give way for the roll-out of the project,” Raila noted.
