Addis Abeba-Djibouti: Africa Celebrates First Modern Electrified Railway

A new electrified rail line connecting the capitals of Ethiopia and Djibouti was officially opened on Oct. 5. The project was built and financed by China.

The 752.7 km long line, with a designed speed of 120 kmh, was constructed by China Railway Group and China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation with a total investment of $4 billion. It will reduce travel time from 7 days to 10 hours and give landlocked Ethiopia faster access to the sea port of Djibouti, through which more than 90% of Ethiopia's imports and exports – in particular, energy and food – pass. The capacity of the current road system has long been overwhelmed.

Electrification, which is far less expensive than using diesel locomotives, is possible because of the government's investment in large hydroelectric power projects.

"The railway is constructed on the basis of Chinese railway technology standards while taking into account the national conditions of Ethiopia and Djibouti," Zeng Deli, a project manager of the China Railway Group, told Xinhua. The project took only six years to build, Zeng added, which should be viewed as some kind of miracle even in China. Over the course of the project, Chinese teams trained more than 15,000 local workers to help build it and to run the line in the future, and the training programs will continue.

The modern, standard-gauge railway runs parallel to a decrepit, meter-gauge railway built over 100 years ago by Europeans. The government plans to establish industrial parks in cities along the line.

Overall, as we have reported, Ethiopia has managed to achieve impressive economic development over the past years and is a key ally in Africa of China's One Belt, One Road initiative. It is on that backdrop that a destabilization operation was launched against the government a few weeks ago.

Indeed, ethnic tensions are being stoked among the Oromo ethnic group, the second-largest in the country. In the latest incident, a festival near the capital degenerated into a stampede after provocations were launched. The chairperson of the opposition Oromo Federalist Congress, Merera Gudina, accused police of firing tear gas and shots into the air to disperse anti-government protesters.

Merera made his statement from Washington, where he is at home, since being made a Reagan-Fascell Democracy Fellow at the National Endowment for Democracy, which is the main "regime-change" institution in the U.S.. Most of the opposition leaders who are quoted on the incidents reside in the U.S., where they have been given fine positions at the NED, Harvard, or other “elite” institutions.
