Parliament to discuss Kenya Airways Wetangula drama

24 October 2014, 17:17 William Korir

Nairobi - Parliament will discuss the conduct of Kenya Airways and their staff as well as relationship with the house after they refused CORD leader Moses Wetangula entry into a flight to Mombasa because he lacked his national identification document ID.

The declaration was made just a week after several leaders and MPs complained of poor service by the national carrier, saying they should revoke parliament's monopoly as regards flying using the airline for official duty.

And with the Wetangula incident, it is understood that there will be a session to discuss the airline.

" It will happen Tuesday next week," a source familiar to parliamentary proceedings told News24.

It is understood that the bone of contention not only lies with the Wetangula saga but just overall poor service from the national carrier.

" There have been many complaints previously over the airline. Poor service, late take off and other matters which MPs have already previously raised and want corrected," the source added.

Wetangula has already said that he will sue the airline if an apology is not forthcoming, saying he produced other identification but it was denied and he ended up being embarrassed by a female member of staff.

" I was embarrassed despite efforts to remedy the situation by providing alternative identification including my Kenya Airways Platinum card," he complained Friday.

The airline though, in a press release was not forgiving of the matter, saying that it will treat all passengers equally.

" Kenya Airways operates in a highly regulated industry and in the context of the prevailing security environment these measures become more imperative. These requirements are clearly posted at all the passenger accessible areas at all airports," the airline said in response.
