Kenya Railways Corporation has come to the defence of the construction of the Standard Gauge Railway following concerns over the cost compared to other railway projects in the continent. The Corporation Managing Director Atanus Maina says the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) is built based on the needs of the country which is to primarily ease the moving goods to and from the port of Mombasa. Speaking to Capital FM Business, Maina says Kenya's objectives for the railway are different from those of other countries like Ethiopia, and that the dynamics of rolling out the massive infrastructure projects are different.
