    More than 100 000 Kenyans residing in the US will soon be able to fly directly to their home country for the first time since the 1980s. This could happen as early as May, according to a Quartz Africa report.

    For years, the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority tried to pass audits by US aviation officials so that its international airport – Jomo Kenyatta International – could host non-stop flights between the two countries. But after failing the audit twice before, Kenya funded a US$62 million upgrade to address the airport’s security and safety issues.
