Former Kenya Airways executive told: No reinstatement

The ongoing case filed by former Kenya Airways Finance Director Alex Mbugua has not seen him get the reinstatement he wanted, as the justice presiding over the case did not grant him that application.

However, the court also prevented Kenya Airways from filling the position with a substantive new appointment, leaving the acting Finance Director in place for the time being, until judgement has been rendered.

While it is beyond doubt that the airline has made losses, Mbugua’s case is based on various assertions over both responsibility as well as timing of his exit from Kenya Airways.

The rulings came in yesterday during a court session attended by both parties with Justice Mbaru who also asserted that Kenya Airways was not a government corporation and neither public nor government pressures had a role to play in this case. A final ruling from court is expected in due course,
