Speaking at its launch, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta referenced the country’s colonial British railway — known as the “Lunatic Express” — built more than a century ago, saying: “Today 122 years later, despite again a lot of criticism, we now celebrate, not the Lunatic Express but the Madaraka Express, that will begin to reshape the story of Kenya for the next 100 years. I am proud to be associated with this day.”
