Kenyan pilots call strike next week to demand change at national carrier

NAIROBI Oct 11 (Reuters) – A major Kenyan pilots’ union has called for an indefinite strike beginning Oct. 18 to protest what it described as poor management at the troubled national carrier Kenya Airways, the union’s general secretary said on Tuesday.

“We have no confidence in the airline’s recovery,” said the circular from Capt. Paul Gichinga, the head of the Kenya Airline Pilots Association (KALPA).

“KALPA’s members will from 5:00 a.m. (local time) Tuesday 18th of October down their tools until a comprehensive change of guard at Kenya Airways is effected.” (Reporting by Humphrey Malalo; Writing by Katharine Houreld; Editing by Mark Trevelyan)
