 This is welcome good news.  

Link is Chris Mc Greal’s article in The Observer:

The funding of $1 billion is for 5,280 miles of road and 373 miles of railway track seems rather modest. I also feel given African governments reluctance to spend money on road repair whether it would have been wiser to make railway tracks (being easier to maintain) the priority.

The sates benefitting are: Zambia, Malawi, Botswana,Tanzania, Zimababwe, South Africa, Mozambique and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
