An air traffic controllers strike that was broken by the government’s move to fire them all has created potentially unsafe skies over Kenya. The air traffic control system is now being run by managers, instructors from the school of aviation and retired controllers. Many of these replacements have not worked as controllers for many years, and are working long hours. Both the Kenya Airline Pilot’s Association and the Kenya Tourism Concern have appealed to the government to reinstate the controllers and address their grievances to avoid an air disaster.
