KQ flight forced to divert

Kenya Airways

A Kenya Airways flight from Lusaka, Zambia to Nairobi was on Monday morning forced to divert to Arusha, Tanzania.

Reports indicate that the flight was forced to divert after two unsuccessful landing attempts due to bad weather.

Meanwhile, the Meteorological Department advised on changes in the weather due to tropical Cyclone Herold.

Cyclone Herold developed close to Madagascar and is expected to strengthen in the coming days as it heads into the southern India Ocean.

"Based on the current position and projected direction for this cyclone, we are expecting a reduction of rainfall tonight and tomorrow.

"Once the Cyclone starts to weaken by the end of Wednesday as it moves E by S direction the rains will resume back," the weatherman said.
