Kenya Railways Apologises After SGR Train Stalls At Kibwezi For One Hour
XStandard Gauge Railway (SGR) passengers on Wednesday experienced a one-hour delay after their train stalled at Kibwezi.
The train, which was on its way to Nairobi from Mombasa, reportedly developed a technical hitch.
Describing the mishap as an 'unscheduled stop', Kenya Railways said on Twitter that the situation was rectified and the train proceeded to the Nairobi Terminus.
"We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused and assure you of our commitment to continually provide an efficient and reliable service."
The SGR passenger service was launched by President Uhuru and DP William Ruto on June 1, 2017.
The passenger service operates two types of trains - intercity and county.
The intercity option will see trains operate between the cities.
For the county option, the train will make stops at Mariakani, Maisenyi, Voi, Mtito Andei, Kibwezi, Emali and Athi River.
Intercity trains have a capacity of 1,200 passengers and will take four and a half hours.
