An American woman who has a very close attachment to Kenya and has been helping underprivileged kids is in shock after her bag was  emptied by suspected officials at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

Chicago based Ghoncheh Lee,  who recently travelled from Nairobi via Amsterdam, was shocked to notice – on arrival at Schipol Airport – that he bag was emptied somewhere along the way and all its contents stolen.

Desperate for help, she put out the following message via social media;

The message caught the attention of Maggie Marika-Kwabena, an Atlanta based human rights activist who passed on the matter to Kenya Airways for investigation. This how the correspondence went:

Meanwhile, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines weighed in:

 

Ms Marika-Kwabena decided it was time to take the matter up with the officials at JKIA and wrote to them directly:

 

“Joel Osinta… Can you address this complaint? You confidently told Bmj Muriithi on this interview that this was not happening at JKIA. This sheds very negative light to JKIA and it needs to stop.

Kenya Airports Authority  has responded thus:

“Hello Maggie, thank you for bringing this to our attention. We have taken up the concern, communicated to the passenger and the case is under investigation.”

Background

Ghoncheh, the lady who lost her stuff, works as an Executive officer with ROCK, a non-profit organization in Kenya

which provides academic assistance and peer support to vulnerable youth in Kenyan slums.

She is also part of the Executive Team and leads ROCK’s fundraising efforts. She has lived in Kenya working with several start-ups and recently  returned to Chicago to support her family’s business. Her recent experience as she flew out of Nairobi has, to say the least, has left her with a sour taste.

Hopefully, her stuff will be found and an apology offered.

Unfortunately, this is just one of the many  similar or related complaints by many – especially Kenyans in the Diaspora – who have had some disturbing experiences at JKIA. Below is a related video clip courtesy of NTV Kenya:

The drama continues….
