We have the ICD it's a dry port.. no heat raised.Would the dry port raise any temperature if it was in Athiriver?
If I was government I would build a huge intermodal transshipment hub in Malaba that would ease hinterland access. This hub would benefit the western region with jobs and as well opening of new trade corridors to central Africa.
That facility would serve Kenya, Uganda, South Sudan, Sudan, Ethiopia, CAR, DRC, and probably even Egypt.
Those spreading hate and fear need to be shutdown with logic. Like how would Mombasa lose jobs?? If anything the port gains since it will be the center of our export hub. With Naivasha being our new industrial hub our Mombasa is going to be even busier to ensure our cargos go to the world boosting our GDP and improving the lives of people in the county.
Those making noise are just mad because they'll lose business to the SGR at the CFS like Joho who is riling people up because of his selfish interests.
