2 SGR workers injured in crash on Nairobi-Naivasha rail
At least two workers at Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) site have been injured after a mishap at a construction site.
Four sources independently confirmed to the Nation the incident that a Chinese contractor wants buried.
The incident happened between Kimuka and Nachu tunnel on the SGR route to Naivasha.
The crash happened on Phase 2A of the project which is nearing completion and will soon be launched by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
During the Tuesday incident, two locomotives separated and crashed into each other due to sharp breaking.
One had a wooden compartment and had construction equipment.
Earlier a source at the firm had said there was a technical issue where the locomotive used to detect the faults on the tracks stopped suddenly on its routine checks.
The source who is not authorised to speak to the media denied a collision of any sought.
China Communications Construction Company (CCCC), the parent company of China Road and Bridge Construction (CRBC), which is doing the second phase of the project, drafted a statement for the media and but changed its mind on releasing it at the last minute.
