Chinese-built railway helps power Kenya's economic growth
The Chinese-built Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) has helped power Kenya's economic growth by transporting goods and people since its launch five years ago. The Mombasa-Nairobi SGR, mainly financed by China and built by the China Road and Bridge Corporation, began construction in 2014 and went into operation on May 31, 2017.
With a total length of 480 kilometers, the SGR has halved the travel time between Kenya's two most important cities, from an average of ten hours to approxmately five. Over the five years of operation, the railway has handled nearly 7.8 million passenger trips and shuttled over 1.7 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs). #China #Kenya #The Chinese-built Standard Gauge Railway

It can be a debt trap or help the country growing, depend on government
You can look at how much a country owe to who to see if it's a debt trap. Take Sri Lanka. 10% of it's debt is owe to China, but if you're a sheep, you'd believe they owe China 100%.
Yet another ecological disaster. One of the railway lines crosses the Nairobi National Park.
More C "choo-choos" to make you forget you are living in a prison.
Get out of the prison soon, buddy. Be a good person in the future. Don’t do bad things again.
China's investment in Africa is improving lives and beneficial to both parties.
Congratulations to China for another splendid achievement
It's gladdens the heart to see China and Kenya cooperation.
Good luck to you.

I have not been to Kenya but I am curious to know what have Amerikkka built in Kenya that benefits the people and country? Can you please name 1 thing that is built by Amerikkka that is as big and similar to this train system built by China?
Since one of the Amerikka ex-president his ancestor is from Kenya I am sure he must has helped Kenya build something bigger than China during his 2 terms as president.
