Kenya's national railway company announced on Monday the resumption of freight services to and from the port city of Mombasa after they were disrupted by heavy rains and landslides along the coastal region. Kenya Railways said on Sunday that a landslide on a section of the freight rail line linking Mombasa to Nairobi had led to "the closure of this axis to all freight trains" , specifying that passenger trains were still running but with delays. The national railway company announced in a statement released on Monday that "freight train traffic to and from Mombasa has now resumed" . “We are working around the clock to minimize delays ,” Kenya Railways continued, without giving further details on the consequences of this interruption. Mombasa , the country's second largest city, and its rail freight line serve not only Kenya, but also the region's landlocked neighbors including Uganda , South Sudan , and Rwanda .
