China officially hands over the SGR to Kenya


China has officially handed over the Standard Gauge Railway to Kenya.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has been joined at the Port of Mombasa by dozens of top officials from the Chinese companies that helped build and fund the railway project.

The handover ceremony included traditional dancing and singing to mark this momentous occasion.

The railway will eventually link up to the entire East African region. It’s been called a potential game changer for Kenya and the region.

President Kenyatta is due to leave from the Mombasa station on Wednesday morning to take the inaugural train to Nairobi.
