Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta has warned that those who vandalise the newly launched standard gauge railway will be hanged, Kenya local media reports.

Mr Kenyatta said this as he was launching a new passenger train service that cost the country $3.2bn to build.

“I want to firmly state today that those who will be prosecuted and found guilty of vandalising a property belonging to all Kenyans; a property belong to our children, forgive me God, I will sign
their death sentence for them to be hanged,” The Citizen paper reports.

One of the headlines of Kenya’s dailies The Daily Nation headline reads; Uhuru: God... I'll approve execution of vandals. 

Meanwhile The Standard's headline also reads UHURU ON SGR VANDALISM: God forgive me, I will approve their hanging

The warning, came a day after a court reportedly remanded three suspected vandals for 14 days. They were arrested for allegedly damaging the railway line in Mariakani, near the coastal city of Mombasa.
