The crash victims, Mauritius Oduor a cameraman at Royal Media Group, Sam Ogina from Citizen TV and Joseph Njane from Radio Citizen, a co-pilot and a pilot are now admitted at the Nairobi Hospital.

And according to the Deputy County Commissioner for Lang’ata Sub-County, Philip Lemalasia, they’re doing much better after being treated for head and limb injuries.

Speaking to journalists Lemalasia said that the passengers were very lucky that the plane landed at the Christian Centre instead of the Southern Bypass because if it landed at the bypass it would have been a catastrophe of epic proportions.

“What we can say is if the plane would have crash-landed on the Southern Bypass, the casualties would have been more; the damage, also, would have been higher.”

The owners of the plane, Advantage Air also spoke to the media concerning the accident and revealed that the plane was in mint condition during takeoff but they don’t know what went wrong and are now looking into it.

Speaking to Citizen Digital, Peter Kamau, who maintains the plane said, “They were flying very low. The pilot said everything was okay. They did not raise any alarm. Normally, when there is a danger, the pilot reports and lands in an emergency.”
