Kenya Airways: “Though the second half is expected to be much better, we believe that it will not be able to lift us past the Sh6 billion comprehensive loss we have made in the first half. So based on capital markets guidelines, we issue a profit warning because we believe our full year results will be lower by more than 25% compared to last year,” Alex Mbugua, CFO.
