Kenya Airways flight with Esther Passaris on board cut short minutes after take-off

A Kenya Airways flight from Mombasa was on Thursday evening aborted shortly after takeoff due to a technical hitch.

Nairobi Woman Representative Esther Passaris was one of the passengers onboard the flight that was scheduled to land at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

In an update to her followers, the female MP congratulated the pilot for the quick response.

"Grateful to God for journey mercies. Our Kenya Airways flight from Mombasa en-route to JKIA was cut short six minutes after take-off due to a technical failure.

"Kudos to the pilot for making a good call," she tweeted.

The woman rep was also expected to fly to Murang'a on Friday for a mega Embrace Women rally.

Kenya Airways sued by Peter Bore

In an unrelated development, KQ was on Thursday taken to court by a Nakuru-based lawyer Peter Bore, for causing him humiliation in Tanzania.

According to Bore, he had booked a return ticket but was forcibly kicked out of the flight from Kilimanjaro returning to Nairobi.

The guards at the Tanzanian airport allegedly manhandled him and threw him out of the plane after his name was found missing on the flight manifest.

The lawyer was forced to spend the night in the Tanzania airport as KQ did not offer any help to get him clearance for a flight to Nairobi.
