Rwanda has announced its plans to set up a cargo facility in Kenya, aimed at bolstering trade between the two nations. The announcement was made following a meeting between the Rwandan High Commissioner to Kenya, Martin Ngoga, and Kenya’s Transport Cabinet Secretary Kipchumba Murkomen.

In a statement released after the meeting, CS Murkomen expressed gratitude, saying, “We thank the Government of Rwanda for their interest in establishing their cargo-handling facility at the Naivasha Dry Port, which will further boost the transit of goods between the two countries.”

Highlighting the strategic partnership between the two countries, Murkomen emphasized, “Rwanda is a strategic partner for Kenya and the East African Community as a whole, and we shall continue strengthening and deepening our diplomatic, business, and political relations.”

Moreover, the Kenyan government is also actively seeking to enhance trade relations with Rwanda, with CS Murkomen revealing, “We discussed ways of improving efficiency at the Port. I urge government agencies and other service providers to take advantage of the 24-hour service at the Port to improve service delivery.”

The move is part of a larger effort by Kenya to facilitate regional trade, as evidenced by previous offers of land at the Naivasha Dry Port to South Sudan and Uganda.

Additionally, plans are underway to extend the railway line from Mombasa to Uganda, highlighting the strategic significance of the Naivasha Port as a key investment for enhancing trade connectivity in the region.
