Train services resume in Nairobi following hitch

15 February 2016, 20:57

Nairobi - The Rift Valley Railways has resumed normal services in Nairobi after a glitch caused serious transport problems in the capital early Monday.

According to The Standard, RVR has apologised to all its customers who use the commuter trains after the morning mishap.

In a statement sent to newsrooms the RVR management stated the reasons for the glitch.

" There was a technical glitch that required teams, both in Uganda and Kenya, to delay the commencement of commuter services.

" All trains have now resumed their normal schedules and measures have been put in place to ensure this does not recur.
