CAMRAIL refutes total Responsibility for Train Catastrophe, Demands International expertise

CAMRAIL has frowned at some portions of the Yang commission report on the Eseka train disaster, released by the Secretary General at the Presidency. While accepting that over speeding was the main cause of the tragedy, the company is however contesting claims from the findings that the locomotives were defective and is declining that responsibility on grounds the machines were new.

The company reveals that the wagons were purchased in 2014 through an international call to tender and argues that the wagons could not have been in good condition, though preliminary findings showed they were in good state before purchase. The company from which the wagons were bought has to bear responsibility for furnishing equipments in a possible doubtful state, CAMRAIL officials claim.

The company however assures families who were affected by the catastrophe that measures are being taken to ensure they are paid compensation and that it will cooperate with judicial authorities to see to it that those who are found to have a hand directly or indirectly in the disaster face the law
