Kenya Wants Another $3,7 Billion Railway Loan From China

The corporation is also holding talks to finance a system that will ensure the railway, its passengers, goods and equipment travel securely through populated regions in its 974-kilometre journey from Mombasa to Malaba in Busia County. The terms of China's loan repayment are the subject of debate after revelations that the port of Mombasa may be handed over to the Chinese if Kenya defaults.
