Railways station in drastic makeover as Macron visits – PHOTOS

As the Swahili proverb goes ‘Mgeni Njoo Mwenyeji Apone’, Nairobi central railway station was on Wednesday unrecognisable from its messy self after being spruced up ahead of a tour by French President Emmanuel Macron.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and President Macron toured the railway station on Wednesday afternoon after holding talks at State House.

The two countries will partner to build the Nairobi commuter railway system.

Nairobi county government went out of its way to give the railway station a face lift by picking the  litter and chasing away hawkers and matatu operators.

The pictures of the spruced up railway stations have been shared widely on social media.
