  • State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena has answered to questions about why President Uhuru Kenyatta was not aboard flight KQA002 from JKIA to John F. Kennedy International Airport.

    It had been earlier reported that Uhuru would join the over 200 passengers on the first-ever non-stop trip from Nairobi to New York.

    Speaking to kenyagist.com, she refuted that he was scheduled to board the Boeing B787-8 Dreamliner (5Y-KZE) christened “The Zambezi River”.

    She dismissed the reports referring to earlier statements and press releases from State House about the historic Nairobi – New York voyage.

    It is possible that the public could have misconstrued the president’s heavy involvement in the planning of the maiden trip to mean that he would also travel.

    On October 28, Uhuru flagged off the KQ flight that left the airport at 11.29 pm and is expected to touch down on Monday 29 at around 1:55 pm.

    The Kenyan delegation will be headed by Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Monica Juma, Kenya Airways Chief Executive Sebastian Mikosz and Chairman Michael Joseph.

    The flight will mark a new beginning in Kenya’s aviation industry, in that it will open new horizons for the country’s trade and investment through enhanced travelling.

    The Kenyan innovators were selected for their creativity and innovativeness in the areas of biotechnology and solar energy.
