Sudan crisis hits Kenyan businesses

National carrier Kenya Airways, which runs five weekly flights to the troubled country, was the first one to take a hit, prompting it to cancel two fights between Nairobi and Khartoum scheduled for last night. FOr year KQ air flights have fuelled a thriving trade that opened up Sudan for Kenya’s tea, coffee, spices and tobacco.
