Kenyans Look into Chinese 'Racism' at Rail Project

The China Road and Bridge Corporation, the builder and operator of the Standard Gauge Railway line, is being accused of discriminating against Kenyan workers - who are expected to take over the running of the rail service in 10 years - in unemployment, assignments, salary, sitting arrangement, catering and personal hygiene services among others. The Ministry of Labour and Social Protection has put together a team to look into the matter.
