Taking on social media, Murkomen confirmed that power was immediately restored at the airport except at at terminals 1A and 1E.
“Changeover to the standby generators ensured power was immediately restored to most parts of JKIA. Regrettably, supply did not immediately resume at terminals 1A and 1E.
In the wake of tonight’s incident, I led a team composed of PS Transport, Kenya Airports Authority Board Chairman and Managing Director among other KAA officials to assess the situation at the airport.
As you may be aware, there have been problems with JKIA which we have been addressing progressively.
Considering the frequency of the power disruption, and taking into account the fact that JKIA is a facility of strategic national importance, we are making a formal request to the National Police Service to investigate possible acts of sabotage and coverup.” he said
The CS further confirmed that cleanup is underway at JKIA with the KAA board under instruction to implement the recommendations by the technical committee.
“In the meantime, the cleanup of the mess at JKIA continues. The KAA Board is under strict instructions to carry on with the reform agenda and the management to implement, as directed, the report of the technical committee which I recently constituted” he said
