KAA rubbishes Sky News report on KQ stowaway By Citizen Reporter For Citizen Digital


The Kenya Airports Authority has denied a report on Sky News that identified the stowaway who fell from a Kenya Airways plane as Paul Manyasi worked for JKIA.

In a statement, KAA insisted that the man identified by the British news channel never worked at the airport.

“Colnet Limited Kenya is a cleaning company contracted by Kenya Airports Authority. The name Paul Manyasi does not appear in the JKIA register,” KAA said.

The authority further maintained that the name Paul Manyasi apparently does not appear in the Airport Pass Biometric Register.

On Tuesday, Sky News released a report that identified the stowaway who fell off the undercarriage of a KQ plane headed to London as Paul Manyasi from Kakamega.

According to Sky News, the 29-year-old deceased man was an employee of Colnet, earning roughly Ksh.9,000 a month.
