🇰🇪🚉Aight #KOT, listen up! It's time for some train lessons. I'm sick and tired of people like @johnnjenga regurgitating bad/false information about Chinese made railways/locomotives/rolling stock in Africa as part of their debate over whether #Kenya got a bad deal on the #SGR.
@johnnjenga I'm not here to argue that Kenya got value for $ with the SGR or if it's being run properly or not. I'm here to say - stop using invalid points in this debate when you haven't researched. Ya'll look foolish otherwise. Comparing photos of bullet trains with rail yard shunters.🤦🏼‍♂️
@johnnjenga But, but.. high-speed rail in China! The four biggest networks in the world are USA 250,000 km, China 121,000 km, Russia 85,500 km, India 65,000 km. Of these 4, only China (29,000 km) & Russia (1,326 km) have HS railways. HS rail is for passenger service. SGR is freight focused.

Folks, irony is that people are blaming IMF and World Bank for no reason yet they were giving high fives for promises for stadiums, tablets for school kids and last mile connections to nowhere.
The mad spending sprees that GoK went on since 2013 was pure bread and circuses policy of throwing money at problems and acting as if it's a benevolent parent with unlimited money
And GoK even gave as the #SGR train to the coast which cannot pay for itself but will work as a long ride through an amusement park now.

The Kenyan Vets were sidelined to pave way for AFRICA PARKS who will manage our Game Parks. Balala @tunajibu has been paid, it's not about 'race'. It is about a new regime in the North run by the British. Africa Park's President is Prince Harry

mathenge joe @mathengejn >>"Ian Craig is the new Cecil Rhodes,the new #coloniser who confirms the adage that colonisers never went anywhere; they have just changed tactics and that's why we need to be entirely vigilant.
We agree: Let us look at the timelines
Our President @UKenyatta did a "deal" back when he was confirmed as President. He did this with the Royal Family. Recently, he signed a secret letter with Space For Giants. And @BrandKenya was unveiled....
Maasai were the most important natives on the branding - as servants
