Transport Permanent Secretary (PS) Esther Koimet was on Tuesday morning chased from parliament committee meeting for failing to present records with details on plans to have Kenya Airways (KQ) take over JKIA operations.
The PS, together with Sebastian Mikosz, KQ CEO, appeared before the National Assembly Committee on Transport, Public Works and Housing.
Members of Parliament were to be provided with the Privately Initiated Investment Proposal (PIIP) but Koimet stated she did not have it.
“What business will we be doing here if you don’t have the proposal? We can’t talk about what we have not seen,” stated Pokot South MP David Pkosing who is also the Committee chair.
Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, who is part of the committee, also weighed in on the matter.
“This is not a document that you are going to manufacture. It is in your shelf,” Kuria argued.
The committee gave them an hour to present the document and return with Transport Cabinet Secretary James Macharia.
MPs stated the CS would be the right person to answer their questions in the matter since the decision had been made in cabinet level.
“The CS is at the center of this so we cannot proceed without him,” Shadrack Mose of Kitutu Masaba stated.
This comes after the proposal that JKIA and the airline be merged.
