Mr. Murianki will be visiting Johannesburg and partaking in this year’s 2015 AirCargo Africa Convention taking place between 25th – 27th February at Emperors Palace to participate in an interesting panel of discussion:

Beating Infrastructure Challenges and Adopting New Standards

Air Cargo is essential to Africa’s economic growth.  But poor record of safety and security coupled with sufficient infrastructure, lack of regulation and government actions have been the main constraints to the air cargo industry in this continent.  Africa needs to find solutions that can combat these issues and create the roadmap towards profitability.

It is our pleasure to advise that Mr Murianki will be available for one-on-one interviews on both the 25th and the 26th February 2015.


Mr Murianki has been in the airline industry for over 12 years and served in various roles including Finance Manager, Commercial Business Performance Manager, and Head of Financial Control prior to his current role as General Manager for cargo business in Kenya Airways.

Please liaise with Lesley Simpson Communications on to firm up a suitable meeting time/personal interview OR for any further information you may require.


Last year, Kenya Airways Cargo, the freight division of Kenya Airways, cemented its position as a leading global player in the air cargo industry by winning ‘the best airline in Africa’ in Air Cargo News annual ‘Cargo Airline of the Year’ presentations.

Led by General Manager of Kenya Airways Cargo, Dick Murianki commented “Such recognition is a major kudo as it reflects not only on service excellence, reliability and sustainable performance in moving cargo to and from the busy and increasingly competitive Africa region but also drives quality standards in the emerging markets of Africa.”

Incidentally, this was not the first time that the airline had been honoured with this award, but actually the second time around.
