Here is why presidential candidate MOSES KURIA was forced to cancel his trip to Kigali on Wednesday – UHURU KENYATTA in the mix

Wednesday March 6, 2019 - Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, was among senior State officers who were scheduled to leave the country on Wednesday to attend a Universal Health Conference in Kigali, Rwanda.

In an interview with KTN on Wednesday morning, Kuria said he was forced to cancel his trip due to the ongoing strike of aviation staff at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

The lawmaker narrated how he was forced to wait at the airport for hours alongside other top State officials and elected leaders before deciding to cancel the trip.

"I was at the airport since 3am.”

“I was headed to Kigali but I have given up.”

“Other Members of Parliament headed to other parts of the world are also stranded at JKIA," he said.

He expressed fears that such issues might gravely cost the nation if not addressed in the shortest time possible.

Kuria said that such strikes expose the country to competition from the likes of Ethiopia and Rwanda which have fully prevented similar incidents in their airports, adding that the move might land Kenya in trouble.

"This is very sad and costly because we are now getting a run for our money from a small nation like Rwanda.”

“The worst part is that we saw it coming and did nothing," he added.

The staff were on strike to protest the takeover of Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) by Kenya Airways.

President Uhuru Kenyatta and his family have been linked to the takeover deal which is opposed by many Kenyans.
