CS Monica Juma Bashes Media For “Misleading The Country” In SGR Loan Reports

Foreign Affairs CS Monica Juma has bashed the media for misleading the nation about President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Chinese trip.

News reports indicated that the head of state who was accompanied to China by AU envoy Raila Odinga was supposed to secure a Sh368 billion SGR loan.

But according to Juma, the multi billion loan that could have seen the railway extended to Western Kenya was not a priority.

“In fact the SGR extension beyond Naivasha was never a priority agenda for the current mission to Beijing,” she tweeted.

In fact she said, the trip was focused on growing market access, development of the country’s industrial and special economic zones, and partnership with the private sectors for investment.

While in China, Kenyatta inked a Sh67.5 billion deal for Nairobi expressway and Konza data centre.

Kenyan farmers will also start exporting their popular hass avocados to China.
