Kenya Airways: Wooden staircase for passengers not ours

KQ responded after the photo went viral after it was first shared by a Twitter user whose handle is @AdamMaina, with some online users suggesting that KQ was forced to be ‘creative’ due to the financial problems it is experiencing.
“Hata kama ni shida, hii ni nini,” wrote @AdamMaina.
