Chinese Minister Defends Kenya's New SGR Railway

China's vice-minister for Foreign Affairs Zhang Ming has rubbished social media claims that locomotives on the new standard gauge railway are refurbishments of old models. He also says the project is an investment that will bring long-term rewards to Kenya, despite accusations that Nairobi borrowed too much for it.
