Bungoma chopper man in court, denies endangering his life

The middle-aged man who hanged on a helicopter in Bungoma has denied a charge of endangering his life.

The man, 41-year-old Saleh Wanjala, was arraigned before Senior Principal Magistrate Stephen Mogute on Wednesday afternoon.

He was charged with endangering his life and that of the helicopter’s pilot.

He denied the charge and was released on a free bond to allow him receive treatment for injuries sustained during the incident.

He will again appear in court on Friday for bond hearing.

Mr Wanjala grabbed the headlines last week after hanged on the chopper that had delivered the body of slain Jacob Juma as it flew away from Bungoma’s Posta grounds.

He eventually managed to jump off the helicopter after the pilot lowered it to a level where he could jump off.
