German Investors Eye Railway Project linking Kenya and Southern Sudan
2004 September 25

  Top German investors are due to arrive in the country early next week to explore investment opportunities in the transport sector. 

The delegation comprises of executives of top German companies led by railway magnate Klaus Thormalen of Thormalen and INGENO Group. The Thormalen Group has already expressed interest in undertaking construction of the proposed Sh300 billion-railway line linking Kenya and Southern Sudan.

Yesterday, Planning and National Development minister Anyang' Nyong'o said the team will arrive on September 27 and will engage in a series of consultative meetings. 

A representative of the delegation and the principal initiator of the rail project, Dr Costello Garang, is already in the country. 

Garang is the Sudan Peoples Liberation Movement's (SPLM) Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development. 

SPLM has already authorised the German company to construct the railway line on the Sudanese side. 

Dr Garang is the one who initiated a feasibility study on the proposed project and is expected to lead presentation of the report to top Kenya Government officials during the visit. 

The building of the railway - from Southern Sudan across northern Kenya to Nakuru - is expected to provide much needed infrastructure to the remote semi- arid region. 

The visit comes at a time when the process of concessioning of Kenya and Uganda railways is at an advanced stage. 

Nyong'o said the delegation, which includes key Government officials and a member of a German royalty, the 7th Count Von Bismark, also comprises of top corporate entrepreneurs interested in other sectors.
