Kenya Railways Board Chairman Mr. Michael G. Waweru has formed adhoc Board committees to spearhead the process of resolving the issues highlighted on various platforms concerning the project.
Among the matters to be addressed with urgency are the operator’s staff concerns, the general operations of both the passenger and freight services.
The Board committees will submit a report in three weeks’ time on the findings and the way forward.
The committees will also delve into environmental and wildlife conservation concerns being raised regarding the SGR project and if found necessary an independent auditor will be appointed for that purpose.
In his statement to newsrooms, the Kenya Railways Board Chairman Mr. Michael G. Waweru has also dismissed as a falsehoods reports doing rounds on various media to the effect that the China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) employees are being forced to sign a secrecy agreement that compels them to not disclose information about the operation of the Madaraka Express Services.
While re-affirming the Corporation’s position on the matter as contained in a statement by the Kenya Railways management, Mr. Waweru said that upon conclusion of investigations, appropriate action will be taken based on the findings and recommendations of the committees.
