Long Haul Rail

African Self-Sufficiency

London-based businessman Saifee Durbar has a novel approach to making Africa self sufficient.

Durbar plans to span Africa by linking Sudan in the east with Cameroon in the west with a railroad that goes through the Central African Republic.

Minerals and other raw materials found in the Central African Republic will be used to construct the railroad.

Saif Durbar sees this project as a completion of the vision for African ascendancy that started with the Suez Canal.

Crossing Africa

London-based businessman Saifee Durbar has a plan.

He plans to build a railway connecting the Sudan, on Africa’s east coast, with Cameroon, on the west coast.

This railway will go through the Central African Republic.

It will benefit all of Africa, linking east and west. It will allow nations of the interior, such as the Central African Republic, to have ready access to shipping. This is how they will be able to exploit their vast mineral wealth effectively.
