The Kenya rugby Sevens champions Shujaa, arrived in the country aboard Qatari Airways and no their sponsors Kenya Airways. Funnily, KQ bosses hurriedly requested the boys to take a selfie next to KQ boeing as part of damage control.
Nonetheless, the Kenya Airways branded T-shirts could not dwarf the domineering presence of the Qatar airways plane that landed the Kenya team.
It is the sick irony of this regime.
One may ask all those KQ boeings, what’s for? Here was a moment of great PR, both for the country and the national carrier. Here KQ would have marketed itself as Kenya’s national carrier. As East Africa’s leading airways, as Africa’s pride.
