President Uhuru Kenyatta has directed the Kenya Airports Authority to improve the passenger handling capacity of the international arrivals terminal at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, the country’s main aviation gateway.
The President, who toured the terminal Tuesday, immediately upon his return from South Africa where he attended the 25th African Union (AU) Summit, said the KAA should take all measures necessary to increase efficiency at the terminal within the next two weeks.
President Kenyatta’s directive came ahead of the start of the Global Entrepreneurship Summit to be held in Nairobi next month. The July 25-26 summit will be attended by world leaders, including United States President Barack Obama and thousands of participants.
Acting Transport Cabinet Secretary (Minister) James Macharia, KAA Chairman David Kimaiyo and the Acting KAA Managing Director Yatich Kangugo accompanied the president on a tour of the facility.
The President had gone straight to the international arrivals terminal after disembarking from his plane together with First Lady Margaret Kenyatta.
