    How will nationalization of kq affect current share holders? What is the likely performance of the kq share?

      No just be patient the share price a going to rise more and more due to the nationalisation plan..Peter Karunga, told the Star that investors are hoping for a premium when the government buys out minority shares.

      ‘’It is the right place to put your money. Those who bought in April at below a shilling are merrymaking. They are likely to earn up to 12 times,’’ Karunga said.

    About KQ shares, and the company being the national carrier, the government will always bail it out. Is it wise to buy the shares for long term speculations?
