Is Northern Corridor initiative still on track?


RE:Northern Corridor is initiative is well and alive, says Mushikiwabo” (The New Times, April 5). How, yet the leaders themselves have been sending conflicting signals? This is so especially on SGR with reports showing 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 then to Kisumu. It will be tragic if Kenyan SGR hits border with Uganda and no one to take over and continue.
