Kilifi Governor Amason Kingi was robbed at an Italian airport where he had gone for his second meeting after attending the UN Habitat convention in Brussels, Belgium.
Footage from the airport’s CCTV footage showed a man walking away with the Governor’s briefcase which he said contained his passports and other important documents.
The incident that happened on Saturday afternoon led to the governor to missing the Kenya coast Guard service launch.
“Unfortunately upon arrival at the airport in Italy on 17th Nov, my briefcase containing my passport and other important documents was stolen. I immediately reported the matter to the airport police and the Kenyan Embassy in Rome,” the governor said.
Kingi was provided with an emergency passport to facilitate his travel back to Kenya as further investigations were carried out.
