The Kenya Airports Authority on Tuesday, March 24, issued a statement, disputing claims that a consignment of six million face masks meant to aide in curbing Covid-19 pandemic vanished mysteriously at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).
Through their social media platforms, the authority stated that thorough investigations had been conducted and established that no masks went missing.
“There was no cargo of this nature that has passed through JKIA for the last two weeks and no missing cargo has been reported to the authorities,” read an excerpt of the statement.
The authority further stated that the matter was being treated as fake news.
“We, therefore, wish to inform the public that we are treating this report of alleged disappearance of six million type FFP2 protective masks as fake news and that our cargo section continues with normal operations,” the statement read.
