Kenya Airways engineers go on strike

Over 200 engineers working for Kenya Airways began a go- slow Thursday to decry poor working conditions, poor pay and what they termed as frustration by senior managers.

The engineers warned passengers that there would be no in-flight engineers on board the airlines’ planes as required by air safety regulations, while ground counterparts would also down their tools.

This means, Kenya Airways risks the wrath of the International Airport Transport Authority (IATA), whose rules states that planes must be serviced and checked by engineers before they fly.

The strike came barely two days after a Kenya Airways plane hit an electric pole as it landed in Bujumbura, Burundi, to pick Nairobi-bound passengers.
