Kenya Railways Suspends Ban on Foodstuff and Beverages into Termini
Kenya Railways has suspended its ban on foodstuff and beverages on its termini and stations following public outcry. The transporter is negotiating with service providers to offer improved services on the trains.
“Following customer feedback on the notice prohibiting entry of beverages and foodstuff into the SGR termini and stations, Kenya Railways wishes to reassure our customers that we have instituted negotiations with our service providers,” read a statement from the agency.
On Wednesday, Kenya railways warned passengers that food and beverages from outside are not welcome in the trains. At the same time, the agency warned that it would confiscate foodstuff on security checkpoints.
However, Kenyans did not take the matter lightly, voicing their concerns on the affordability of food in coaches.
The ban on alcoholic beverages into the termini and stations still remains.
