According to the vocal politician, KQ left her and a number of other Kenyans with no other option but to enjoy the only beers served on the flight, Tusker.

Karen Nyamu disclosed that she prefers her favourite beer, Summit Lager but had to take Tusker because it was the only local beer served during the flight.

“I am forced to take a Tusker because Kenya Airways does not offer Summit Lager by Keroche industries which is my beer of choice,” Karen Nyamu wrote in part.

She demanded KQ to serve variety of local beers to give their own people a chance to survive in business.

“I demand that our national carrier Kenya airways supports our own by ensuring we have the full selection of local beer na si tafathali,” Karen added.

The legion of ‘haters’ noted that Karen’s decision to post photos of herself indulging in alcohol was misguided andr her character failed short of her honorable status.
