    Mwaniki Mageria is very ignorant on drone matters. Not everyone buys a drone to make money off of it, just like not everyone buys a camera to make money.

    This is really stupid, drones have more advantages to our economy than disadvantages. These politicians are ignorant, stupid and greedy. They should take the time to understand what exactly these drones can do instead of quickly jumping to conclusions.

    No technology comes without risk, and being risk averse will make Kenya not realize the advantages of drone technology. The uses of drones far outweigh the negatives associated with them because their use impact many sectors across the economy. If the minds of regulators are stuck on a bad guy using the drone and therefore resulting to draconian regulations, then the winners are the bad guys. Average Kenyans will be losers. Keep in mind a bad guy who has the ability to acquire such a bomb will have an easy time acquiring a drone. Embrace the technology and let Kenyans show us their potential through their eyes.

    Using the argument that drones can carry bombs is like banning pockets because they can carry guns.

    This Riverwood CEO thinks like an idiot

  8. Abdihakim Mohamed on February 24, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Bunch of fools just thinking about the money you don’t need somebody training you how to fly a drone you can just click on YouTube and the rest is history

    Mwaniki sounds like a he works for the government πŸ˜•πŸ˜•

    The fees by KCAA are ridiculous

  11. Stevenson Juma on February 24, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    Soo stupid

  12. Kevin julu on February 24, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Regulation is okay by most of interested parties but the picture portrayed by the Aviation authorities has already turnish the whole positive side of these technology.. have been working on the software part of a drone for 6 months now and it has so many advantage possibilities which can help out in many fields in this country. So let’s focus of the positive side which literally outweighs the negative ones.

  13. Mohamed Nuh on February 24, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    if the government keeps us away from technological innovations like drones we will always be third world country. money grabbing leaders taking us backwards always…..

  14. Brian Lerionka on February 24, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    They must be regulated by the government for a better air safety and security

  15. pm on February 24, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    These idiot wazee’s… It’s like when michuki tried to shut down mpesa coz it can be used for money laundering… Every new thing is viewed as a threat.

    Kenya policy makers quick to kill one of the firstest growing industries while other youths are investing heavily in delivery, security and commercial application in kenya its for the chosen few another industry down the drain then we busy crying unemployment and crime

    The problem with Kenyan Parliament is Excess Foolishness

  18. Skull Knight on February 25, 2021 at 12:01 am

    why should i pay the fee,and the technology is still growing out there and the govt hasn’t done enough to support the youth or create institution that will properly help buyers to understand drones.
    flying a drone is fun and can help in the community acting as watch dog….

  19. P-Code Consulting on February 25, 2021 at 12:03 am

    We do not refuse registrations, but making the fees exorbitant is utmost stupid from the authorities. Some of our leaders Simple/cheap minds, everyone has a computer but we are not using them to hack government, can they bring down governments faster than a drone? Yes. But why dont we do that?.. we have better things to be doing than hacking govt.
    Make the process easy, make it cheaper, goodness we are a third world country, over-regulating a future step with meagre information beats all logic.
    Mwaniki has a very flawed logic on the costs. A computer can make one millions, but also it can just be used for gaming, does it mean you charge everyone 200k… because you think its for business or because it has a potential of making millions? No.
    Lastly, Kenya is big, simply regulating the entire geographical region is stupid, what are the chances that a drone will collide with a plane while being flown somewhere remote like plains of Suswa?

  20. TITECH Kenya on February 25, 2021 at 12:04 am

    Agree about regulation and registration. But it’s clear that the governing bodies are so incompetent and inefficient to even handle this technology.
    Mwaniki, Hiring that drone is now around 8k so in a year you won’t even have enough to renew the License!!!!!!
