Erroneous reports on KWS Helicopter

Erroneous reports on KWS Helicopter

Kenya Wildlife Service would like to clarify misleading reports appearing in sections of the media about its helicopter crash-landing in Karatina in Nyeri county.

The true position is that our chopper was this morning flying to Ol Pejeta Conservancy for translocation of elephants. However, when the pilot realized that the weather was bad, he deliberately landed in Karatina and proceeded with the journey when the weather became clear.

Therefore, it’s erroneous to refer to the intentional landing as ‘emergency’.We would like to assure the public that the helicopter’s mechanical condition was sound and  therefore there is no cause for alarm.
