Negotiations between government and Rift Valley Railways have delayed the revival of railway transport.
This is according to Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) Executive Director Jennifer Musisi.
While touring the Namanve railway line that’s under repair, Musisi said that work is in progress on their side but government has not finalized with Rift Valley Company.
She says their plan was to have the first passenger train from Namanve running this month but this may stretch to March.
Musisi says after completion, it will only cost Sh1,700 for a passenger to move from Namanve to Kampala with no hustle, calling upon the public to support the project.
Works on the railway line stalled on parliament orders to allow investigations into allegations of corruption.
