- On the day of travelling, December 28, the ODM lawmaker found out that her ticket had been sold to another client.
- She claims that her children had to travel alone, as she was left stranded for hours at JKIA.
Nominated Senator Beatrice Kwamboka now wants Kenya Airways operation license to be suspended.
Kwamboka has moved to court seeking to have the national carrier stopped from operating in Kenya, following a gruelling experience with her family.
Apparently, Kwamboka booked a flight to Mombasa for the December holidays. She says that she bought three business class tickets, one for her and two for her children on December 6.
But on the fateful day of travelling, December 28, the ODM lawmaker found out that her ticket had been sold to another client.
“Regrettably, on December 28 at the time of departure, I was shocked to learn that my ticket had been improperly ‘sold’ to another KQ client without offering me an alternative,” reads court documents as reported by The Star.
The lawmaker claims that her children had to travel alone, as she was left stranded for hours at JKIA. Even after getting an alternative, it was an economy class ticket.
“Pending hearing of the petition the court is pleased to issue conservatory orders suspending Kenya Airways license to fly and operate in Kenya.”
In July 2020, Kwamboka hit the headlines when she engaged in a fistfight with nominated counterpart Mary Seneta due to an Election outcome of Senate health committee.
Trouble started when Seneta accused some members, including Kwamboka of colluding to edge her out of the position.
It took efforts of the parliamentary security to separate them.
