The Kenya Air­ways has about 600 engi­neers de­spite the re­cent mass res­ig­na­tions that have left the tech­ni­cal de­part­ment strug­gling, CEO Mbuvi Ngunze has said. Speak­ing af­ter pre­sid­ing over the air­line’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing, Mbuvi said it is fac­ing high staff at­tri­tion fol­low­ing mas­sive poach­ing by Mid­dle East airlines. “It is a mat­ter of con­cern and the board is aware of it. We are look­ing at ini­tia­tives to re­tain peo­ple,” he said. Not­ing that the air­line is a prime source of ex­perts due to the ex­ten­sive train­ing of its staff, Mbuvi said KQ has enough engi­neers and safety stan­dards.
