Cofek angered by KQ’s continued flights to West Africa

15 August 2014, 09:18 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - The Consumer Federation of Kenya (Cofek) Thursday termed Kenya Airways’ decision to continue with its flights to West African nations hit by Ebola outbreak as unfortunate.

In a statement, the federation’s Secretary General, Stephen Mutoro said the national carrier’s decision to ignore pleas to stop its flights to West Africa in preventing the risk of spreading the deadly Ebola virus was unfortunate, senseless and irresponsible on a corporate citizen of its’ stature.

Mutoro also expressed his disappointment with the silence of conspiracy from President Uhuru Kenyatta, and lashed out at the Health and Transport Cabinet Secretaries accusing them of taking instructions from the airline.

“With limited options available, we have instructed our lawyers to move with speed and seek a High Court injunction against Kenya Airways, the Health and Transport Cabinet Secretaries decision to allow flights to West Africa at the earliest possible,” the statement read in part.

He said they may also call upon Kenyans at short notice to peacefully assemble at the Kenya Airways head office to demand for remedy.

Cofek appealed to the International Civil Aviation Organization to take a more decisive action against Kenya Airways, saying the health of Kenyans is far more important than the profits the company is keen upon.
