Speaker escapes unhurt after plane mishap

A helicopter carrying National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi was Saturday forced into an emergency landing at Kihunguru ACK grounds in Nyandarua County after experiencing bad weather.

Mr Muturi had left a fund raising ceremony for the proposed Nyandarua County Cancer Centre at Miharati, in Kipipiri Constituency where he was the guest of honour at around 6.30pm when the incident occurred.

Reports indicated that the pilot encountered foggy weather at Nyakio Ward in Kinangop Constituency, forcing him to land at the church grounds barely ten minutes after taking off.

Mr Muturi arrived at the fund raising venue at around 6pm but did not stay for long, citing time constraint as he was supposed to fly back before it was dark.

He briefly conducted the ceremony and left.

Accompanied by Majority Chief Whip Beatrice Arachi and Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa, they left the venue in the helicopter only to land a few minutes later.
