Thousands of commuters stranded at Donholm station after Embakasi bound train got stuck

Commuters who depend on the Kenya Railways train services plying the Kitengela-Pipeline-Donholm- Makadara route failed to get to work on time. It was established that the train which plies that route was stuck due to a mechanical fault.

Nairobi locals flocked to social media to express their dissatisfaction, claiming that they were unable to get to their workstations on time. Others took issue with Kenya Railways personnel who remained silent on the subject, accusing them of failing to provide the necessary information.
Kenya Railways has also been chastised for recent train stallings owing to mechanical failures. Passengers on the train from Lukenya were stuck in October 2021 when the train they were riding broke down in the middle of their journey. The passengers bemoaned the fact that the train had been stuck for over an hour.
In a statement, Kenya Railways explained that the train had stalled due to a mechanical problem and technicians were working to restore the services.

“We are experiencing an undue delay on our train plying the Lukenya station to Nairobi Central station route due to a mechanical problem.
“Our technicians are attending to it and we will resume the trip shortly. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused,” read the statement in part.

After her maiden trip to Kisumu City, the newly launched train also stalled on December 21, for close to four hours around the Tamu area in Muhoroni.
