House Speaker Justin Muturi has prevented the Public Investments Committee from examining the attempt by Kenya Airways to assume control over the administration of JKIA.

This was because of a dissent by the Transport Committee which had blamed their partners in PIC for violating their order.

PIC had started examinations concerning the concession understanding that would see KQ run JKIA for a long time, refering to grounds Kenyans would lose cash in the arrangement.

Muturi, in a letter to Transport Committee executive David Pkosing (Pokot South MP), said the issue of the takeover involves government strategy, subsequently, is inside the command of the Transport Committee.

“Notwithstanding, it is vital to take note of that the Public Investments Committee may manage the issue if this was a question emerging from the examination of inspected reports and records of Kenya Airports Authority or an extraordinary review,”

He said in the February 21 letter replicated to PIC director Abdulswamad Nassir
