Kenya Airways #ticker:KQ management has faulted a ruling by the Employment and Labour Relations Court, which Monday reinstated its sacked engineers and technicians.

The firm argued that Justice Hellen Wasilwa arrived at her decision without the requisite input by a safety expert.

The judge, when making her ruling, stated it is unsafe for the public to fly in unserviced aircraft, hence the order that the over 130 sacked employees be reinstated as the case is heard and determined.

“I direct that Kenya Airways immediately reinstates the sacked employees pending hearing and determination of the case,” Lady Justice Wasilwa ruled.
