Kenya plans to build East Africa's first exclusive cargo airport

Kenya, a grower and exporter of avocados, vegetables and other fresh produce to world markets, plans to build East and Central Africa's first exclusive cargo airport.

The Kenya Kwanza government plans to build the cargo airport on land in the Athi River area.

This will enable the Kenyan fresh exports of avocados, vegetables and flowers to reach other countries much quicker, while also creating thousands of jobs said Moses Kuria, from the government's Investments, Trade and Industry department.
