2022 Presidential candidate Jimi Wanjigi has opened up on what really happened on the SGR project that has cost Kenyans billions of Cash. According to Jimmy, the SGR was a project that was birthed by him in 2008 alongside a construction company called CRB.

He revealed that they spent lots of cash on visibility. Initially, the intention was for it to be a private rail with the Kenyan government agreeing to provide land as a lease. The project was to cost a total of around Ksh. 55 B from Mombasa to Malaba.

However, things changed when the jubilee government took over power in 2013.

"After 2013, the SGR became a project not worth Ksh. 55B between Mombasa & Malaba and became over Ksh. 330 B from Mombasa to Nairobi. The intention was not to take taxpayers money for the project." he said 

According to Wanjigi, Ruto and Uhuru inflated the prize after they got into power and decided to use the taxpayer's money. 

Meanwhile share with us your thoughts on the matter kindly.
