Kenya SGR cargo trains to ferry cheap maize.

Cargo trains start ferrying goods from Mombasa to Nairobi earlier than planned to ensure subsidised maize reaches the market on time amid a shortage of flour. The standard gauge railway (SGR) cargo trains on the new railway were supposed to start trips in January next year but the current development see them commence operations much earlier to save millions of Kenyans who have been grappling with the shortage of subsidised flour that is going for Sh90 for a two-kilogramme packet.
