Kenya Airports Authority - Another Scam! - Again!



It seems the nincompoops (or merely the corrupt) at KAA are at it again.

KAA's CEO is a george muhoho-ho-ho (whose nephew, uhuru kenyatta,  is Kenya's Finance Minister & a Deputy Prime Minister) who has extensive political connections. Of course, GM got the job not on merit but thanks to his golfing buddy mwai kibaki (Kenya's current president).

For those unfamilar with uhuru's background... His father was Kenya's first president & an internationally infamous land-grabber. jomo kenyatta (real name kamau aka 'crooked' wa ngengi) never saw a piece of land he didn't like. For free or at a huge discount to market value!

Anyway, so GM heads KAA which runs jomo kenyatta int'l airport (crooked loved naming public projects after himself) in Nairobi. JKIA was built in the 1970s & has seen little improvement since. It is a small, stuffy, congested & lousy airport for a city the size/status of Nairobi.

It is amazing that Kenya Airways has managed to grow despite JKIA being its hub. I find using JKIA to be torture.

So... it seems that a 'politically connected' airline (OneJetOne) will be allocated the old Embakasi Airport in exchange for (fill in the blank). 
As an FYI, OneJetOne's parent (AirSouthAsia) does not have permission to fly out of it's home base in Sri Lanka.

Whereas JKIA faces immense challenges especially as regards congestion, there have been half-hearted attempts to increase the size of the airport. Nothing major has been done so far. A prior plan was rife with problems & rejected by the airlines. It seems that some officials in KAA had more than a passing fiduciary interest.

It seems OneJetOne was given preferential treatment in this deal. Instead of advertising to all & sundry about the possibilities of using the old airport, there was a hush-hush element to the newspaper advert & subsequent lease deal.

Using the past as history, I would not be surprised to learn that georgie muhohohoho & cronies were getting a slice of the action!

And to make matters even worse, one of the directors of OneJetOne is a former PS (gerrishon ikiara) in charge of airlines & airports. And by dint of his government position, he was on Kenya Airways' board of directors & privy to KQ's future plans!

And on a smaller scale, there is the endemic corruption regarding parking at JKIA.  KAA does not properly maintain parking markings at JKIA which means police officers wait to pounce on innocent motorists!

The Short-Term Parking at JKIA is inadequate & Long-Term Parking is woefully inadequate. The LTP is dark & deserted... you could be killed & no-one would find your body for day!

The truth is hardly what it seems. Just to enlighten everyone, the tender was placed in the newspaper; no secrecy there, as it was open to everyone. So everyone was open to bid for it, but not everyone did.

If you fully read the article that was in the daily nation, you will understand why OneJetOne is such a big threat. Try and read between the lines to see who will benefit most by preventing entry of OneJetOne. I am in the I.T industry by profession & even I can see that the article was a ploy to throw mud at an upcoming venture.

I think the parent is actually Air Asia from Malaysia. Note the similar livery.

Air Asia (existing) and air south asia (planned) co-operate. Arjun Ruzaik tried to launch Air South Asia as Air Asia subsiadary in Sri Lanka. The status of that project is unknown. Now Arjun is in Kenya trying to launch OneJetOne. Will remain interesting if he will actually succeed on the second try.

I read the article. It said that the ad you refer to was vague. It seems that the ad was a mere formality & not placed to elicit the most/best responses!

"Yet a close scrutiny of the newspaper advert that appeared on July 24, 2008 shows that the scope of the assignment was not made clear to the tenderers.

The advert merely talked of a tender for “utilisation” of the old Embakasi airport without specifying to prospective tenderers that what was at stake was a BOT deal where the successful bidder would be expected to demolish the existing Embakasi terminal, construct a new one, and enter into a long-term revenue-sharing deal with KAA."

Just like Anon 11.47... I am not sure if AirAsia is really behind OneJetOne.

Or I thought the name would have been AirAfrica or AirEastAfrica...

And so far nothing in Sri Lanka...

NTV reporter Nagila must have goofed and meant 100 million shillings a year to Panari. 100 million a month does not make sense

- Second time were seeing CEO’s take the gloves and ranting against the government, this month its Naikuni, last month it was Michael Joseph. Hope more business leaders can get politicians to act straight - this should be the work of the chamber of commerce, but Pattni got there first
- So one jet one does not exist or operate, even in Asia – we should start calling it "Air RVR" or "RVR Air"
- The Qatari deal is……whhfff

The boss at KAA probably needs a bit of extra cash, in order to finish constructing his brand new hotel, built on an ex-KAA piece of land, located on Lang'atta Road, opposite the entrance of Wilson airport...

i think the tender was not transparent, they deliberately made it vague to lock out companies like KQ who we know are not in the best financial position to start new projects. Anyway, i doubt if KQ could actually use it for domestic operations...the way the acfts are used to do both intl and domestic flts, it would be such a hustle, imagine a B737 landing from Mbsa and parking at old embakasi then it taxis to JKIA to do a flt to Kigali.....half a tonne of fuel wasted....unless they tow them...which causes more delays to an already VERY NON-TIMELY airline(if there is anything like that!! they have 90% delays!!)...so what is their beef??? Do they want the contract???

The re-appointment on Friday for at least one more year of the disputed Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) CEO George Muhoho has immediately caused yet more controversy.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.

To be a noble lenient being is to have a make of openness to the far-out, an cleverness to trusteeship aleatory things beyond your own manage, that can lead you to be shattered in unequivocally exceptional circumstances for which you were not to blame. That says something exceedingly weighty about the prerequisite of the honest compulsion: that it is based on a trust in the up in the air and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a spy than like a treasure, something rather feeble, but whose very special attractiveness is inseparable from that fragility.
