The crash happened just hours before a Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) helicopter crashed during take-off. The chopper was supplying food items to flood-affected families in Buna Town, Wajir North.

Wajir County Red Cross Coordinator Abdia Manya said several people including the pilots and teachers sustained injuries and were taken to the Buna Sub-county Hospital.
