Kenya Airways Captain Kibati was buried on Saturday. His death brought tears to my eyes. In life, he was a gentleman. Firm but polite. Personable.
In this era of the Corona Virus, things happen too fast. And sometimes you just don’t know where to begin, when you want to condole with those left behind.
At a personal level, Captain was a client. At the community level, he was a role model and an inspiration to many.
Captain Kibati died in the line of duty. While we accept God’s will, I can only hope that KQ will have the good sense to pay top dollar as compensation to his family. KQ took on a business risk when it sent its members of staff out there, at a time when the skies were fraught with risk. KQ knew or ought to have known that these members of staff were just a sneeze or cough away from mortal danger.
For Captain Kibati, they KQ should expect a claim of not less than Shs.100 million, My condolences to Jane and the children. RIP Captain.
