Kenya has already commissioned its Mombasa-Nairobi SGR, cutting down transport fees.

Ugandan traders and others in the region will soon be picking their cargo from Nairobi instead of Mombasa, officials have said.

The Kenya Ports Authority (KPA) says the move, coming after the completion of the Standard Gauge Railway by the Kenyan government from Mombasa to Nairobi, will help reduce the cost of doing business.
