Kenya Airways has made headlines once again following reports that four top executives have left the company.

KQ has been the target of a lot of criticism over the years following their financial struggles which have been linked to poor management.

Catherine Moraa (head of internal audit), Lucy Muhiu (head of employee relations), Kevin Kinyanjui (information systems director), and Brian Mbuti (in-flight and jet fuel procurement) have left national carrier.

According to the companies human resource director Sammy Chepkwony the four had ‘resigned’.

“We not only recognize the long service rendered to Kenya Airways by these colleagues, but also the various individual achievements and contributions they have each made over the years,” said Chepkwony.

“On behalf of the Kenya Airways family, I wish them and their families all the very best in the future endeavors.”

In related news several questions have been raised after the new chief executive Sebastian Mikosz hired five expatriates after receiving approval from the KQ board.

The CEO says the five have been selected on a three-month contract but did not confirm whether their contracts will be extended.

“The advantage of these guys is that I trust them and I have worked with them. They could hit the ground (running) within I think three weeks. Will they stay? Will they not stay? That is not decided,” Mr Mikosz said on September 21.

Monika Kietyka-Michna, Edyta Kijewska-Teny, Magdalena Serwach, Marcin Celejewski and Micha Mierciak are part of the five member team.
