Chopper forced to land on the busy Mai Mahiu highway to rescue Jalango and friends

Jalango and his colleagues got stuck on Mai Mahiu highway after the Range Rover they were traveling in broke down. They had to call a chopper to airlift them to Nairobi.

The 4th edition of Mashujaa Party which is sponsored by Tusker happened from Saturday October 22 to Sunday 23at Crayfish Camp in Naivasha.

Jalango, Obinna Ike Igwe, Big Kev, Owago Onyiro, Timmy Tdat among other big names in showbiz travelled to Naivasha for the party.

Everything ran smoothly in Naivasha but Jalango and his team experienced mechanical problems as they were returning to Nairobi.

The comedian and his colleagues were travelling in a convoy of at least four vehicles returning to the city; one vehicle broke down making them stop on the busy Mai Mahiu highway.


A Range Rover that the comedian was travelling in was the one that broke down; it appeared to have overheated as Jalango was busy filling water in the radiator in a bid to cool it down.

After struggling to fix the Range Rover without success, the comedian decided to call Uber chopper to rescue him.

The chopper landed by the roadside along the busy Mai Mahiu highway before it airlifted them to the city.
