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.
Once the scheme is completed, the two countries should benefit from the fast movement of goods and people, and enhanced internet connectivity. The latter will be used by towns and facilities along the corridor including schools, hospitals, government offices and telecommunications operators.
Robert Mugo, Director for Shared Services at the ICT Authority, who spoke at the project commissioning event, said the authority is implementing the Kenyan side of the project through a World Bank fund estimated at a cost of USD 25.5 million, while the Sudan side is estimated to cost USD 15 million.
The road construction between Lokichar and Nedapal is worth USD 500 million and will be funded by World Bank. The full cost of the road construction from Eldoret to Sudan border is an estimated USD 1.2 million. The real construction work will start in May 2016 and will be completed in February 2019.
