Uganda: Kenya-China Rail to Aid Coal Imports to Uganda
25 October 2012
AllAfrica.com - The new railway line Kenya and Chinese authorities are planning on will transport coal from Tanzania to Uganda for steel making.
The rail deal worth $2.6 billion is one of those infrastructure components that Beijing has budgeted for in its three-year $20 billion planned investment in Africa, which is double the amount China gave three years ago.
Kenya secretly signed with a Chinese construction company, China Roads and Bridges Company, to build a new standard gauge railway line between Mombasa and Nairobi to be completed in five years.
