Does Kenya Railways Really Have to Buy Used Trains From Spain?

The corporation claims that the Spanish trains are much cheaper and that France has bought similar trains. Kenya Railways says the purpose of the purchase is to see the number of people who seek rail transport increase from the current 13,000 a day to 132,000 passengers per day.
