The Government of Kenya is seeking alternative methods to ensure crucial fresh produce exports continue amidst a major airline pilots strike that started over the weekend. The Kenyan cabinet secretary said they are making plans to seek alternatives for the exports.
The horticulture sector has so far lost Sh200 million ($1.64 million) and counting with urgent plans sought to mitigate against further losses. The airline said it is losing Sh 300 million ($2.46 million) a day.
Different parties have urged the use of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms to solve the dispute between the pilots and the airline. Meanwhile, producers have warned of job losses the longer the strike continues.
