The govt made a bad decision even though they are saying the land bridge is not gonna affect the animals I disagree.

A tunnel would actually be better. Or a route bypassing the park entirely.

The cement and steel are all locally procured (i.e. both are made by Kenyan companies).

There were some companies that met the conditions for both the cement and steel needed.

So this project not only provides needed infrastructure, capital, and expertise but also strengthens Kenya's industrial sector. Industrialized Africa in the making.

Future Expansion of Kisumu Line in Kenya

In 2012, plans were being developed to expand the system with a new railway that connects to other countries, namely Uganda, Rwanda, and possibly South Sudan and Ethiopia.[5] The new railway would be 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 1⁄2 in) gauge.[6] Kenya had been negotiating with China to reconstruct the Nairobi-Mombasa section first.[7] Construction of the first phase of the planned 2 937 km $13.5bn line was inaugurated in Mombasa on 28 November 2013.

MoKaKi railway
The project will connect Mombasa via Kampala to Kigali, hence MoKaKi. President Uhuru Kenyatta presided over the groundbreaking ceremony for the standard gauge railway in November 2013. The whole project is expected to cost Ksh 1.3T (327b from Msa to Nrb a distance of 609 km including locomotives). However the project has been riddled with corruption allegations, overpricing, and ignoring of procurement processes. Nandi MP Alfred Keter has been at the forefront on the corruption allegations that caused the Parliamentary committee of investment and transport to investigate the project.However Keter has been claimed to have been hired as a mouthpiece by a prominent investor to fight the project.

It is modern looking and so tourists who come to visit the safaris need to be assured that there are wild animals to see. LOL.
