What you need to know:

  • Ms Mbogo, a nurse at Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) in Msambweni, Mombasa County, booked her ride last week, achieving the fete in the process.

  • She was booked in a first class coach and given a certificate and a Madaraka Express T-Shirt with '2,000,000' written on the back.

  • The target was the transportation of at least 1.7 million passengers by June next year, so the service is months early with this achievement.

  • With an average occupancy rate of 99.1 percent (including inter-county seats reuse), the Mombasa-Nairobi SGR has increased KRC's revenue.

Rose Njeri Mbogo from Gachie village in Kiambaa Constituency, Kiambu County, yesterday made history as she was unveiled as passenger number 2,000,000 of the Madaraka Express.
