Northern Corridor leaders need to speak one language


RE: “Northern Corridor is initiative is well and alive, says Mushikiwabo” (The New Times, April 5).

But the leaders themselves have been sending conflicting signals. This is so especially on SGR with reports indicating that Uganda and Rwanda are exploring the Central Corridor instead of Northern Corridor.

Now such indecisiveness by the leaders is the real cause of stagnation of the NCIP initiative. They seemed not to know where exactly they want to develop. The sooner the leaders make up their minds the better.

In the meantime, Kenya is soldering on with the second leg of SGR, running from Nairobi to Naivasha, Kisumu already started. It will be tragic if Kenyan SGR hits border with Uganda and no one to take over and continue.
