Plane Crash

Just In: Plane Crashes In Mandera County

Early in the morning today, a plane crash-landed in Elwak area in Mandera County. The light plane was enroute to Mandera when the accident occurred. The airplane slammed at Boru Hache military base in Elwak. The plane belonged to Skyward Express company and had more than 15 passengers on board. Luckily, everyone survived the scary mishap.

As indicated by the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) supervisor Mr Gilbert Kibe, all passengers who were in the planes are healing minor wounds. 

The cause of the mishap was yet to be known. Be that as it may, this isn't the first plane crashing around Boru Hache region. On March 2021, a light plane shipping exam papers slammed killing the pilot and the co-pilot. 

The airplane registration number 5Y-JKN was making a beeline for Marsabit when the incident happened. Terrible climate around the region is among the manor reasons for such accidents. 

The incident happened just meters away from where another plane had crashed in 2006, killing 14 people including three religious leaders and four parliamentarians.
