Governor, MPs escape death after chopper flies into bad weather

A helicopter carrying a Governor and two Members of Parliament made an emergency landing in a village in Nyeri County on Friday morning after flying into bad weather.

According to Mukurweini OCPD Issa Muhammud, the chopper was carrying Isiolo Governor Mohamed Kuti, Isiolo North MP Hassan Oda and Isiolo South MP Abdi Koropu.

The police boss said the pilot opted to make an emergency landing in Kiangoma village, Mukurwe-ini, due to heavy fog.

The three leaders are expected to join Deputy President William Ruto in Modogashe and Merti for a fund drive on Friday.

They left the scene of the emergency landing using other vehicles.
