Kenya opens Mombasa-Nairobi railway
Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta has inaugurated a major new railway between the port city of Mombasa and the capital, Nairobi.
President Uhuru Kenyatta said during the launch that the $3.2bn (£2.5bn) Chinese-funded line signalled a new chapter in the country.
He warned that he would authorise the execution of vandals after four people were arrested damaging sections of a guardrail.
It is Kenya’s biggest infrastructure project since independence.
