Kenya Ferry Services in trouble for racial ‘discrimination’

Kenyans on social media platforms are upset with Kenya Ferry Services (KFS) for alleged racial discrimination.

This came to the fore during an interview with a local daily paper, the Managing Director of Kenya Ferry Service, Mr Bakari Gowa, said that white tourists are allowed to pass unchecked and even to jump the queue whereas black and local tourists are subjected to checks.

KFS defended its guidelines saying that foreign tourists are allowed to jump the queue so that they do not miss their flights and domestic tourists should bear with them.

On Wednesday, KFS posted a tweet that seemingly justified Mr Gowa’s remarks.

However KOT and tour companies have said such remarks will kill local tourism and demanded that KFS apologises to their clients.
