I am not to blame for Kenya Airways' Problems, Titus Naikuni

  • Former Kenya Airways (KQ) Chief Executive Officer, Titus Naikuni, said he was never involved in any under deals at KQ to warrant any investigation against him.

    Naikuni instead blamed terrorism and the Ebola outbreak for the massive loss incurred by Kenya Airways.

    He denied claims brought before him by the inquiry committee led by Senator Anyang' Nyong'o, insisting that he was not aware of any fraud at KQ.

    In 2013, the National Carrier and Dutch Airline, KLM got into an agreement that saw the latter acquire 26% of the Kenyan Airline.

    This agreement sparked a backlash against Kenya Airways with many claiming that it did not favour the struggling airline.

    Naikuni however defended the move arguing that it was not responsible for the loss incurred by the company.

    Kenya Airways registered the biggest loss ever posted by a Kenyan Company in the financial year ending March 2015.

    The loss of more than Sh25 Billion gave the company bad publicity due to corruption allegations leveled against the leadership.

    Ongoing Investigations are yet to prove the main cause of the predicament.
