President Uhuru Kenyatta has said his regime has achieved more than the previous regimes.
Speaking on Monday during his Madaraka Day address, he said his administration has managed to tarmac over 1000 kilometers of the road every year – which he said was 44 times more than what the colonial administration built and 4 times more than what Jomo Kenyatta, Daniel Moi, and Mwai Kibaki did in 50 years.
He added that his administration has managed to build the SGR and also revive the Nakuru-Nanyuki railway and also in the process of reviving the Naivasha – Malaba railway.
“Turning to railways now, this is where my biggest critiques reside. But that’s ok, they are not alone, they are in fellowship with the colonizers who called our railway the Lunatic Express,” he said.
He added that his government has revived the previously collapsed Port of Kisumu which currently serves the northern and southern corridors.
“And with this port, Kenya can service the region from Mwanza and Bukoba in Tanzania to Jinja and Entebbe in Uganda; and Muhoma Bay in Rwanda at affordable costs and decent timing,” President Kenyatta added.
