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.

The Kenyans are getting robbed by the Chinese with the SGR project. A 609 km railroad costing 4 billion!
That is 6.5 million per KM of railroad! African stupidity knows no bounds.

Edit: the Ethiopians are more competent than the Kenyans it seems

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

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.
