Rwanda has kick-started plans to construct a railway line that will link the country to Kenya’s Mombasa port through Uganda.

According to Prof. Silas Lwakabamba, the Minister of Infrastructure, the ministry is currently conducting a feasibility study to determine the cost of the project, the route of the railway line, how those affected will be compensated and the appropriate technology to use to deliver the project on time.

“We have already signed a memorandum of understanding with Uganda and Kenya. We are working more closely with our counterparts in Uganda to ensure the project is completed as scheduled,” he said.
