Kenya turns to South Africa to revamp its old railway network

Kenya has turned to South Africa to modernize its old railway network. Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has invited South African state-owned engineering company to revamp and upgrade its railway system. President Kenyatta is seeking solutions within the continent to improve its railway system countrywide after Kenya failed to sign an agreement with a French company in July this year to fund a light rail from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) to Nairobi’s city centre.

In 2020, Kenya’s exports to South Africa were approximately $33 million while Kenya’s imports from South Africa were about $430 million. Over the last 10 years, the Kenyan trade values have been relatively static.

Among other things, Kenya imports edible fruits, nuts, beverages and spirits among others while Kenya mainly exports coffee, tea, spices, edible vegetables and certain roots and tubers, machinery, nuclear reactors, boilers among others to South Africa.
