Invest in railway transport for sustainable development

While bigger economies in the world still transport their goods using railway services, a toddling economy like ours opts for the expensive road transport.

We shall continue lagging behind on the ladder of development if we do not wake up and improve our transport system. With oil production coming in and coffee, cassava, potatoes and the oranges produced in our country it is high time we invested in rail transport. The songs about the Rift Valley Railways company and our president will only help us to remain poor. When does it start to operate anyway?
