A bit more exotic but not less unpleasant :
Strike at NBO, leading to numerous cancellations and huge delays.

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-47467271

I'm attending the African Airports Congress in Luxor and yesterday evening Jonny Andersen, the CEO of Kenya Airports Authority, dropped everything and returned to NBO in order to handle the crisis.

One of the reasons for the strike is the plan, made public by QA a few weeks ago, to create a single entity covering airline and airports in a similar fashion as Ethiopian operates now.

I pity those who planned a safari in Kenya.

They are back in business:

...By the end of the day, however, most scheduled arrivals had been processed while the departures backlog was being cleared, state-run airports operator KAA said. The strike was sparked by a plan to hand over management of the profitable airport, the largest in the country, to the loss-making national carrier..."
