MP calls for prosecution of KQ managers over loss of KES 50 billion

03 October 2016, 08:07 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Tetu MP Ndung’u Gethenji has called for prosecution of Kenya Airways top managers over alleged mismanagement of more than KES 50 billion.

Gethenji said public funds have been lost in the national airline which has been recording losses despite huge injection of funds by government.

“If those who mismanaged NYS money are in court, even those mismanaging the national carrier should be prosecuted starting with the CEO Mbuvi Ngunze. Billions of taxpayers’ money have been lost,” said Gethenji.

Speaking in his constituency at Gatumbiro village, the MP explained that government being the major shareholder must demand accountability and transparency.

However, former NMG CEO Linus Gitahi sharply differed with the lawmaker as he accused government and Kenyans of neglecting the Airline, leading to its downfall.

Gitahi raised concerns that Kenyan politicians, civil servants and other government officials use foreign carriers in their international tours and later blame KQ for posting losses.

He absolved KQ directors from any blame and urged the government to offer practical support.

The State, Gitahi advised, must make a strategic decision to lift the airline noting that firing managers will not solve the problem.

He also asked politicians to stop threatening CEOs of public institutions.

KQ came on the spot after recording a loss of KES 26.2 billion for the year that ended March 31, 2016 up from KES 25.7 in the previous year.
