Wilson airport commends employee who found and returned 2.3 M; A rare gesture with the current economic trends in the country.
Wilson airport stated had it not been for employee Martin Kamau, their image would be turnished.
The tourist, Benson Nickolson reported,” We arrived in Wilson Airport with my entire group from (Maasai) Mara, where we were going to the hotel in readiness for the following day’s trip to the coast.”
“With the help of our rider, we took our bags and headed to the hotel. When we reached the hotel, I noticed one of my bags was missing, coincidentally it was the bag carrying our cash, valuables and cards. I immediately called our rider who had been with us for more than one week.”
“He checked both vans but could not find the bag. I panicked and asked him to go straight to the airport as I took a cab from the hotel to the airport also. On my way, I called the airline to check if it was left on the plane. They called back, regrettably. I asked the airline staff to immediately check the CCTV of the airport, I was shocked to be told that the airport does not have CCTV.”
Martin said,”I calmed down and told him that I am the one, he told me that a bag was found at the pick-up point and he was trying to trace the owner. I told him with disbelief that I was almost at the airport, I told my driver to drive fast.”
Nickolson narrated,”I found my bag and my wallet and cards spread on the table. The long story short, I found my bag and all contents intact. All the money totalling to around 19,000 USD and some thousands of Kenya shillings were all intact. All my cards were found intact. All other valuables, which included a regalia given to me by my late grandmother was also intact. It was a daydream for me.”
Nikolson has commended the airport for the good work.
He said,”In my country, this is not possible to recover. Only in Kenya, I can assure you.”
