Kenya`s Pride of Africa`s fate

The Kenyan parliament under article 118 of the constitution, is yet to receive a document of the public participation process directed by the speaker Justine Muturi to be conducted by the Transport committee to enable the change of law, including holding public sittings, inviting submission of memoranda and expert views, in this case concerning the KQ National.

This is due to a National Aviation Management Bill 2020 presented that stalled last year due to lack of public participation, in the National Assembly last October to have KQ become one of the three subsidiaries in an Aviation Company, with the President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta showing interest on the matter, after he asked the members of Parliament on 12th November 2020 to pass the bill that would make easier plans to transform operations of KQ which has been wrapped in debts.

The bill has The Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) in its plans too, to operate all the country`s airports under Aviation Investment Corporation.

This plan emulates the state-owned Ethiopian Airlines, which is sub–Saharan Africa`s biggest airline, contrary to Kenya airways that has since sunk into debt, losses following a failed expansion in 2014 low customer turn out.

The Bill has been confirmed to be under the state interest, with it being one of the items on the legislative calendar released by the Clerk of The National Assembly, Michael Sialai.
