African Mega-Rail Project: influence and participants

China Harbour won the significant project for the building of the railway, which would connect several African countries. It was a part of the Northern Corridor Integration Projects Initiative (the cost of which was amounted to $14 billion). The latest was agreed upon by several states including Kenya, South Sudan, Rwanda, and Uganda.

The connection was planned to be built to link the following places:

  • the city of Kampala (Uganda)
  • the town of Malaba (in Kenya)
  • the town of Nimule (located in South Sudan).

The China Harbour company was responsible for:

  • engineering works
  • procurement
  • construction.

According to the words of Y. Museveni (the Uganda President), the largest problem of the modern African countries is the absence of the railway. The costs for transportations are extremely high, especially for the large/heavy loads from the ports. The building project will solve such problem once and for all. The support of Chinese government is essential for Uganda and for the rest of the countries on the continent, as it will have a positive impact on the economic development of the continent in general.
