Ruto defends KQ-KAA Deal, urges MPs to stop fighting it

Deputy President William Ruto has come out to defend the ongoing JKIA takeover claiming it is “irresponsible” for Kenyans not to support the ongoing efforts to revive Kenya Airways from debilitating debts.

Dr. Ruto praised Kenya Airways, a national carrier for its efforts to promote economic growth through tourism, horticulture and infrastructure through the direct contribution of 70 percent of the KAA revenue.

He also added that the cabinet had approved for a strategic vehicle to reform Kenya Airways and said that once this is done, the Parliament will deliberate on the issue before the Cabinet takes a position on the same.

“When we put in place a mechanism to save an institution as important as KQ, only for Members of parliament to start fighting it…its unfair…even before we start all manners of allegations are made…we must remain robustly independent but constructively interdependent…”, said Ruto.
