Kenya & South Sudan begin work on fiber optic cable

Kenya and South Sudan have commenced work on the fibre optic cable that will connect the two countries within the next two years, to enhance communication and cross-border trade. The two governments are implementing the optic fibre cable system as part of the Eastern Africa Regional Transport, Trade and Development Facilitation Project.

The project will also build a road linking the two countries from Eldoret to Lodwar and Juba. A common border post will also be built at the interconnection of the two countries.  South Sudan will similarly extend the cable from the Kenya-South Sudan border to Juba.
