Speaking to Citizen TV on Sunday night, Jimmy Wanjigi revealed that construction of the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) was set to cost Ksh55 billion from Mombasa to Malaba and he was the SGR mastermind alongside the China Road and Bridge Corporation.
“SGR was a project birthed by me in 2008 alongside China Road and Bridge Corporation. The intention was that the rail was a private project, with nothing to do with the government. The government was only to provide the land. SGR was to cost Ksh55 billion from Mombasa to Malaba,” said Wanjigi.
1. China Road & Bridge Co. was registered by Wanjigi and Saitoti. It received BILLIONS of public funds to “build” the Thika “Super” Highway.
