NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 24 – The Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) board has reinstated Managing Director Lucy Mbugua and three other suspended senior officials.

KAA chairman David Kimaiyo says the board decided to reinstate them after completing initial investigations.

“The board has undertaken its preliminary investigations within the timeline set out in the human resource manual. Based on the preliminary investigations, the board has resolved to recall the Managing Director and the three senior managers,” Kimaiyo said in a statement Tuesday.

The other three officials are General Manager Procurement and Logistics Hobadiuah Orora, Corporation Secretary Katherine Kisila and General Manager Finance John Thumbi.

Kimaiyo pledged to fight corruption at the authority.

“The board is committed to good corporate governance and organisational performance in service delivery in an environmental of integrity and efficiency,” he said.

The four were sent on a 30-day compulsory leave on February 19 after concerns were raised on agreement for development and management of duty free master licence at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) between KAA and a global travel retailer company, Durfy International AG.

The announcement by the KAA board comes despite the matter being in court where Consumer Federation of Kenya (Cofek) went to court last week to stop the Managing Director Lucy Mbugua from being recalled back to the office.

The consumer lobby group also wanted High Court to allow Yatich Kangugo to continue acting as the MD and the State Corporations Committee pending determination of the case.

And while mentioning the case on Monday, Justice Mumbi Ngugi directed KAA to respond to the case filed by COFEK with the Attorney General also being directed to file his response as a soon possible.

Cofek is also opposed to the decision by the State Corporations Committee and Transport Principal Secretary to subject the KAA directors to two parallel investigations.

The case will be heard on June 10 this year.
