Yesterday, a video emerged showing a Kenya Airports Authority employee soliciting a bribe from a tourist.
The video, shared on twitter by blogger Robert Alai, captures the ongoing ‘negotiation’ between the KAA employee, a Caucasian female tourist and another man believed to be a broker.
The authority confirmed on Twitter on Tuesday that the man was one of its staff and promised to look into the matter.
“Thank you for highlighting this. We confirm that it is our staff & we are looking into the matter with the seriousness it deserves,” the authority wrote on Twitter.
On Wednesday, KAA updated on the progress of the matter saying the employee has been suspended.
“The KAA employee involved in the incident highlighted on the video has been suspended pending completion of the disciplinary process.”

However, Kenyans on Twitter were not convinced and noted more needs to be done to contain the rampant corruption among KAA employees.
