    Start investing in kismayo now, buy land or property before the prices increase after railroad is built.

    Not entirely comfortable with this, a lot of kenyans seem to think Jubaland belongs to them because it used to be part of British East Africa.
    Kenya wants to do to Jubaland what Rwanda is doing to the Kivus of Congo.

    I know that but I was trying to be positive instead of being accused of "conspiracy theory lover" I worried especially with this East African community that HSM keeps applying to join.

    In a future war it makes it easier to transport military goods and short-term it gives them the power of control of the part of the somali EEA that Kenya claims. This is a strategic move from Kenya.

    Building a paved road will cost you few millions per KM. It's an expensive endeavour.

    It's expensive because the whole railroad is being shipped from China. Typical african xoolos

    The Kismayo proposal is never going to happen imo. Garissa on the other hand is very interesting. It is in the top 3 of the most economically viable routes considered. It may actually get built since it is the only economically viable route within kenya.
