How Michael Joseph and other Mzungus are milking Kenya Airways

The struggling national carrier Kenya Airways (KQ) has been on a loss-making streak for quite a while.

The airline made Ksh. 4 billion and Ksh. 5.6 billion loss in 2017 and 2018 respectively.

While KQ makes losses, it has now emerged that the top management smile all the way to the bank.

Pictures of a document circulating on social media shows that the top manager, CEO Sebastian Mkosz (aka Mikosi) takes home Ksh. 8 million a month. In short KQ pays 21 managers a whooping Ksh. 1.3 Billion a year.

Incase you didn’t see this, Kenya Aviation Workers Union did issue the strike notice longtime, their main issue being #JKIA takeover and paying of foreigners exorbitant salaries.— Cyprian Nyakundi Escobar (@CisNyakundi) March 6, 2019

Today morning, Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) workers downed their tools protesting the merger between KQ and KAA.

The merger will see the new outfit KQ-KAA manage Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

I HAVE NO DOUBT in my mind that the claims of corruption, connivance and incompetence made by Kenya Aviation Workers Union against KQ Management are well founded &require further in-depth investigations. Meanwhile KQ &KAA Management should step aside as a half way measure.#JKIA— Steve Ogolla (@steveogollaw) March 6, 2019

The Kenya Aviation Workers Union (KAWU) Secretary General Moses Ndiema accuse KQ top management of financial wastage.

Mr. Ndiema said that KQ pays hefty salaries to top manager and consultants.
