Museveni to be the first head of state to take Kenyan SGR train today.
President Yoweri Museveni will today be the first visiting head of state to take the Makadara Express train on the new Standard Gauge Railway from Mombasa to Nairobi in Kenya.
This was confirmed after discussions on day two of a three-day state visit where Museveni and host President Uhuru Kenyatta held discussions that focused on how to strengthen political, social and economic ties.
President Kenyatta commended the Government and the people of Uganda for the trust and continued use of the Port of Mombasa.
The Kenyan leader invited his Ugandan counterpart to join in the joint development of the SGR to ensure that the line continues all the way to Kampala as intended.
