Plane skids off runway and gets stuck in mud in Mandera- Video


A passenger plane, operated by local airline Rudufu Air, is stuck in the mud at Takaba Airstrip in Mandera West after skidding off the runway on Sunday.

An employee of Khadija Buko, a local flight booking agent, told the Nation that the plane is yet to be pulled out of the mud for the second day.

“We had 30 passengers on board when the incident happened and they are all safe in Takaba town,” the staffer, who is not authorized to speak to the media, said.

Efforts to pull the plane from the mud have not been successful.

“We tried to pull the plane (out of the mud) using a police lorry but it was impossible. We will either wait until the mud dries up or we get a tractor,” he said.

Current rains pounding northern Kenya have dampened the poorly maintained airstrip in Mandera West.
