What a way to enjoy the great breeze in Mombasa as the Kenya Ports Authority’s newest vessel, MV Damali, docked for the first time in Kenya. The colourful event to welcome the vessel was held on Thursday at the KPA offices in Mombasa. MV Damali’s captain Min Thishan and other crew members were overjoyed by the hospitality they received. The new container vessel joins the already competitive shipping line market.
Muthoni Gatere, corporate secretary Kenya Ports Authority, graced the occasion. She awarded the new vessel a certificate of first call and a KPA logo, the normal procedure for ships docking in for the first time.
East African Gulf Boarder team officials present were Yasser Eltunsy, the manager, Amir Abdelsapam, the operations manager, and Mohamed Elwaziry.
