Court says KQ to pay Mbugua Shs 27,000,000
https://www.businessdailyafrica.com/corporate/companies/KQ-ex-finance-chief-Sh144m-award-cut/4003102-5153714-mxjpf/index.html

The judges agreed that Justice Monicah Mbaru of the Labour Court was right in finding that KQ was in breach of the law when it summarily terminated Mr Mbugua’s employment.
“It is quite obvious to us that KQ conflated the performance review and disciplining process and came up with what was essentially a hybrid, mongrel process that did not fall under either category,” they said.
They added that the process was tainted and it would seem the performance angle was no more than a red-herring to get rid of him from KQ.
“His fate was determined even before he was summoned to attend the Serena session, whatever it was, with the demand that he resign, the barricading of his office, disablement of his email and the like,” they added.


Very worrying that a big company like KQ can chase away senior management like thugs knowing very well that courts give on average 1 year's pay for wrongful dismissal. Where were the HR people and lawyers to advise? Why didn't they just serve him with notice?

He was bleeding the firm dry.. But he is Naikuni's problem, not Ngunze, not Sebastian

I did not know Naikuni, not KQ, was going to pay Mbugua. That's Applause Applause Applause

With annual revenue of KES 114B. Loss of KES 7.5B. What's KES 27M to KQ? Tutalipa aende zake!

Kenya Airways Proposes State-Run Entity as Airport Bid Fails

Kenya Airways Plc. is willing to operate under a state-owned holding company after the troubled airline failed in its bid to jointly run the country’s main airport, according to Chairman Michael Joseph.

Lawmakers in the East African nation are expected to issue alternative proposals, including the possible partial nationalization of Kenya Airways, after they last month rejected the airline’s proposal to operate Jomo Kenyatta International Airport with the state-owned Kenya Airports Authority, Joseph said in an interview Monday.

The airline, which reported a 5.95 billion shillings ($59 million) full-year loss, is proposing a model similar to Emirates Airline and Ethiopian Airlines Enterprise, which operate as units of state-owned holding companies. Such an arrangement would enable able it to double its fleet in five years, Joseph said.
“We need the financial structure to enable us to do that,” he said. “It might not be cash, it might be the balance sheet which is why the airport deal was very important for us.”

Kenyan lawmakers may release a report with recommendations on the future of the airline as early as Tuesday.
Kenya Airways, which is 48.9% owned by the government, is also on the hunt for a chief executive officer after Sebastian Mikosz said he would step down before the end of his three-year contract.

“A mature, seasoned executive is what I will hire,” Joseph said. “There’s not many around. If it’s delayed beyond December there’ll be still strong leadership.”

East African Community members need to rethink their aviation sectors or thier dreams of connecting the world and national pride will remain unachievable.

EAC has a fleet size of 60 planes flying to 89 destinations (Kenya 40-53; Rwandaair 12-23; Tanzania 8-13) Uganda, Burundi, South Sudan do not have national carriers. EAC stats are dwarfed regionally by Ethiopian Airlines which has a fleet of 112 flying 125 passenger and 40 cargo destinations.

Compared to international Middle Eastern "competitors" flying regionally like Emirates (258 planes, 158 destinations) and Turkish (336 planes, 304 destinations) EAC carriers are really puny.

Debt ladden EAC carriers (where they exist) are playing in the village league under delusion that they are competing with international counterparts. Only collaborative effort will lead to meaningful impact in the sector. EAC member countries should dissolve their airlines and form an East African Airline (Call it Safari Airlines). Countries without their own airlines like Uganda and Burundi should invest in the new East African Airline.

A collaborative East African Airline will have monopoly in East & Central Africa, challenge the regional giants based on bigger capital base and economies of scale.

Good development. Excellent for the country but there is nothing in it for minority shareholders. Developing new routes takes money.
