Kenyan students who were stuck in Sudan due to coronavirus flight restrictions have on Saturday jetted back into the country.

The 129 students who were on board Kenya Airways landed at the Mombasa Moi International Airport.

They were then taken to the Kenya School of Government for a 14 day mandatory quarantine in line with the Ministry of Health guidelines.

Speaking after being evacuated from Sudan, they were happy to be back to the country as they look forward to joining their families who they have missed very much.

Back in Sudan, the students expressed their desire to come back home as they appealed to the government to come to their rescue.

They cited a number of challenges they were going through including mental problems having been stuck in a foreign country.

Other students from Tanzania were quickly evacuated by their government as they wondered why the government was taking time to respond to their plea.

The news comes months after the government evacuated other Kenyans stuck in China and India.

Air travels in the country were suspended back in March with those ferrying essential goods including medical equipment being allowed in and out of the air space.

Other countries have gradually re-opened domestic flights with the same being expected in the country to boost the sector.
