It is disrespectful to the leaders for KQ staff to evacuate Speakers of the two Houses of Parliament Mr. Justin Muturi (NA) and Mr. Ekwee Ethuro (Senate) & 20 other Senators from their aircraft on grounds that one Senator (Mr. Moses Wetangula) was not able to produce his ID card before boarding.
Despite Hon. Wetangula explaining to them that he forgot his ID Card in his bag which the driver drove with to Mombasa earlier in the day, the KQ staff were adamant saying he must produce the document.
Hon. Wetangula produced all the documents bearing his name including the KQ Frequent Fliers Platinum Card, but they could hear nothing.
The two Speakers who are his colleagues tried in vain to talk to the KQ staff whose simple mindedness could not allow them to hear the two leaders.
Fellow Senators chipped in led by Nyeri’s Mr. Mutahi Kagwe who said Wetangula was their colleague but they refused to listen.
They instead evacuated all the passengers who were on board on claims of security breach.
The question, how was Wetangula allowed to board the plane. Who checked him in. How did they notice that he did not have his ID yet he had already boarded the aircraft? WHOSE mistake was this? KQ please answer this…
