Saifee Durbar: The Last Railway Baron?
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.
