“It is important the people we represent know where we are and the national assembly knows we are still stranded here,” he said.

“As we speak to you, nobody is at the counter to address us, not even the manager. We just came out to see the manager and other members are still inside.

“We don’t know when we are leaving here, and we have shown interest to find out from the ministry of aviation and the Consumer Protection Council (CPC) what is happening to the aviation sector as soon as we return.”
