The aircraft crashed at Kofia Mbaya area, few kilometers from the governor’s office on the outskirts of Marsabit town.

Rescue operations are ongoing.

Mwivanda said that the plane is written ‘Mwalimu’, but was not carrying exams, contrary to social media reports.

“It was coming to pick few people here and head to the meeting,” he said on the phone.

The scene was secured by local security teams.

The plane crashed at the same site where a plane carrying MP Bonaya Godana crashed in 2006.
