Kenya Forcing Importers to Use Costly New Chinese Railway, Businessmen Say

By Reuters Dec. 3, 2019, 2:13 a.m. ET

MOMBASA, Kenya — Kenya's new Chinese-built railway should have been a boon for business. The $3.3 billion (2.6 billion pounds) line sliced hours off the journey from the port city of Mombasa to the capital, Nairobi.

But some importers said their transport costs shot up by nearly 50% when they used the rail due to extra fees, more time spent clearing goods at the congested Nairobi train depot and the need to send a truck to collect the goods from there.



SOURCE: https://www.nytimes.com/...ers-kenya-railways.html



With the new railway, the white man is unhappy that he has nowhere to dump his old trucks that ferry cargo from mombasa. He is angry to see the cash going into the chinaman's pocket instead of going to used truck exporters in london. It's all about the west vs china trade war.

Also how come the americans are happy to give us a new huge loan for a new nairobi - mombasa expressway while they say we are already overburdened with loans?
