Kenya's Flying Matatus..

This is a military chopper that crashed in Narok last year.
Another day, another rusty bird comes tumbling from the skies still in Narok. It barely makes it in the news as this has become the norm in Kenya. Luckily, the passengers, a father and son, survived by hair's breadth. One crashed in Nyayo High Rise Estate- Nairobi, a few months ago. Another crashed in Narok last year while another one killed several MPs in Isiolo and still another killed ministers Kipkalya Kones and Lorna. How many more must needlessly die before this pathetic Govt swings into action and save us from the killer Mitumba planes? According to KBC website regarding yesterday's plane crash:
"Narok North Senior DO, Yussuf Huka said the plane registration 5YBOK SIHRUH, which was extensively damaged, belonged to Farm Land Aviation Company based in Nairobi.
Huka said the plane's two occupants were headed to Nkorinkori in Narok South District to spray wheat at their farm.
He said the two occupants, a father, Marco Bunn who was the pilot and his son Toby Bunn, sustained various chest injuries and were flown to Nairobi for treatment.
Investigators from the Civil Aviation Industry from Nairobi, rushed to the scene to ascertain the cause of the accident."
