President Uhuru Kenyatta and Opposition leader Raila Odinga are in China to persuade that country’s leadership to secure another mega loan that has annoyed Kenyans already overburdened by the national debts.
The phase from Naivasha to Kisumu is estimated to gobble about Sh360 billion before the government seeks for additional Sh170 billion to connect the line to Malaba.
The inclusion of Mr. Odinga in the delegation came as a surprise, as he has been a fierce critic of the government over the SGR project.
