Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni on Thursday evening arrived in Nairobi from Mombasa on his first ride on Kenya’s Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) train.

Museveni was received in Nairobi by his host President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto shortly after 8pm.

It is his second and last day of the state-visit that began on Wednesday.

President Museveni is the first visiting Head of State to travel using Kenya’s SGR.

Earlier in the day, Uhuru and Museveni toured the Port of Mombasa where they were briefed on the operations and recent developments at the facility.

Over 3 million tonnes of cargo have been transported through the SGR between January 2018 and 2019 with 80% of the cargo destined to Uganda.

Uganda is looking to benefit more on the SGR cargo transportation for faster delivery of goods.
