US, Kenya agree to build a superhighway

WASHINGTON

Aug 29, 2018-

The United States and Kenya agreed Monday to build a superhighway from Nairobi to Mombasa, the White House said. After President Donald Trump welcomed his counterpart President Uhuru Kenyatta in the Oval Office, the pair voiced support for closer economic cooperation “aimed at making their nations stronger and their citizens more prosperous,” the White House said in a statement. The project, known as the Nairobi-Mombasa Expressway project would link Kenya’s capital with second city Mombasa, a major Indian Ocean port. It is due to be built by US construction firm Bechtel Corporation. “Both sides agreed to undertake further consultations to conclude the terms of the financing agreement,” the White House said.
