A mini-strike action that disrupted operations of Kenya’s main airport, the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, JKIA, in the capital Nairobi was resolved by authorities allowing normal operations of the airport to resume.

Transport Minister James Macharia, who was at the airport in the morning disclosed in a tweet that the issue had been resolved and paved way for resumption of operations and all flights.

The national carrier, Kenya Airways, also tweeted that delayed flights had been resumed.



A strike prompted by a labour dispute grounded flights at Kenya’s main international airport in Nairobi early on Wednesday, domestic media said, with flag carrier Kenya Airways saying flights were disrupted.

Hundreds of passengers were waiting outside the domestic terminal and riot police dispersed picketing ground staff, adding that three planes took off at about 8:30 a.m. despite the strike.

“Customers on flights after 11 a.m. are advised not to come to the airport until further communication is shared,” Kenya Airways said in a statement via social network Twitter.

The strike at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport follows a labour dispute between the Kenya Aviation Workers Union (KAWU) and the airline.

The High Court in Mukono District in central Uganda found her guilty of murdering her husband Eric Kiddu after hitting him several times on the head with an iron bar.

After the murder Nakku attempted to make the killing appear to be the result of an attack by unknown people by screaming and running to neighbours to ask for help. His body was later found in a pool of blood with a panga and brick besides it, the Daily Monitor reported.

The couple had quarrelled shortly before the bloody encounter with a misunderstanding leading to Kiddu’s death.

Nakku was advised by the judge to appeal the sentence if she was dissatisfied as relatives of both husband and wife argued outside the court, trading accusations.
