How Wendy Kathambi Got Employed as The SGR Driver

The Standard Gauge railway was facilitated and funded by the Chinese government in partnership with the Kenyan National government. The SGR mainly operates from Mombasa city to Nairobi City and vice versa. It's among the fastest means of transport in the country, it only takes less than six hours from Mombasa to Nairobi.

The driver of the SGR is a lady by the name of Wendy Kathambi. Earlier she revealed that come cross and advert that SGR was hiring and that they needed people who had done Mechanical Engineering. Wendy was lucky because she had done that course and she applied for the job and got shortlisted.

She revealed that the SGR has a driver who controls the speed of the train and a co-driver who ensures the driver does not knock down animals on the rail or ram into stones. This is a good example that shows anybody can do any job be it a man or a woman.
