Millicent Omanga Praises Transport CS After Exposing the SGR Contracts
Former Nairobi women rep aspirant, Millicent Omanga has applauded the Transport and Infrastructure Cabinet Secretary, Kipchumba Murkomen for finally disclosing the standard gauge railway contracts that had been hidden from Kenyans since their acquisition during former President Uhuru Kenyatta's regime.
Taking to her Twitter account, Omanga acknowledged the Kenya Kwanza government for making a bold move to expose how the Kenyan government had made a deal with the Chinese government in the SGR contract.
"Kenya Kwanza government is actually a savior to our country. We had lost it already," Omanga stated.
She also thanked the Transport CS Kipchumba Murkomen for keeping the promise of exposing the deals behind the project after being hidden from Kenyans for several years.
"Thank you Road CS Kipchumba Murkomen," Millicent stated.

According to the contract, the SGR deal includes a 20-year loan with a seven-year grace period. Kenya agreed to repay the loan in 156 months (13 years) and to set aside 42.06 percent of the proceeds from the railway to do so.
