Tanzania has secured US$258.8 million from the African Development Bank and the Japan International Cooperation Agency for a high-voltage electricity line to connect its national power grid to Kenya’s, its power utility said on Sunday. The 400 kV line will be completed within two years and is part of efforts to deepen integration between the two countries’ economies, Tanzania’s Tanesco said in a statement on its website. Kenya has already agreed to pay US$50.45 million for work on the link on its side of the border.
