Angel kenya airways bomb scare

Just got a report that kq was outbound (to mombasa?) And was turned back after operations told them they had a bomb on board . They landed safely and are parked on the eastern end of 06.

Well the bomb scare was KQ's bi-annual safety/emergency test. But apparently nobody turned up for it - no ambulances, no bomb disposal squads, no fire engines etc. So I guess you could say the test was not a wild success. Still last time, the test was 'leaked' beforehand, and everyone turned up before the so-called 'crash' and knew where to go without going to the 'briefing HQ'.... Wonder how that leaves all the airlines feeling?

May be exercise was leaked again and that's
why nobody turned up!
Or it's just another cover up story by KQ??
Btw are they still on a go slow??
