Kenyans from abroad start arriving


Kenyans who were caught up in Covid-19 lock-downs around the world have started arriving home.
Some 84 citizens landed at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport aboard a Kenya Airways plane from London, the United Kingdom, on Monday night.
The travelers, who had selected their quarantine centers before starting their journey, presented their corona-virus clearance certificates at the airport.
A source said the passengers were screened at the airport before being taken into quarantine. One of the passengers, said the travelers had sent their corona-virus results to a Kenya Airways doctor, who approved their request for travel.
When they arrived, he said, officials already had a list of the returnees.
Every passenger paid Sh 53,544 for the journey. “We were few in the plane. A passenger was required to occupy three seats,” a passenger said.
“We wore masks throughout the journey. The process at JKIA was so smooth that we were on our way to quarantine by 11.30pm.”
More Kenyans are expected to land from China tomorrow or Friday.
The flight from Mumbai, India, is overbooked as Kenyans jostle to return home tomorrow.
