Kenyans who were stranded in China arrive home

Kenyans who have been stuck in China over the coronavirus pandemic have finally returned home.

The plane carrying the 165 Kenyans touched down at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) on Sunday at 2.50 am.

“This flight is among several humanitarian flights mounted by the national carrier, with the support of the Government of Kenya, to being back home Kenyans who are stranded across different parts of the world,” said Kenya Airways Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Allan Kilavuka.

On May 7, another airplane from India landed in Nairobi, bringing home 234 Kenyans who had been stuck in the South Asia country.
