Airline prevents ex finance capo from entering office after legal battle defeat

The airline lost a wrongful dismissal case in court

Kenya Airways' year of drama continued on Wednesday when its ex director of finance was prevented from returning to work by security at the company's headquarters in Nairobi.

The company has endured a torrid year filled with pilot strikes over renumeration and creditors lining up after poor financial performances.

Alex Mbugua,  had resorted to court to settle a labour dispute with the company after he was dismissed and after a verdict from a Labour and Relations court, he had reported to work.

According to the verdict, the airline was either to reinstate Mr.Mbugua without loss of benefits and lawful entitlement or pay him a severance equivalent to a four year pay out on his salary.

Mr.Mbugua was however denied entry by security and rather handed  a notice of leave.

In an interview with Kenya's Business Daily, he revealed his ordeal at the office.

"Upon arriving at Pride Centre, I was blocked from driving into the employees parking lot or walking to my office. I was instead instructed to wait at the security bay".

Mr.Mbugua had been dismissed from the company in 2016.
