Morris Kirai Emerit, a Kajiado County resident said:

“This plane came when we were under the hill there. It started making a funny noise, not that of the propeller, it sounded like an ambulance. After 10 seconds it turned and tried to land but it couldn’t. I think it hit that hill and after hitting the hill, it suddenly turned and hit the ground”.

Emerit said he helped to rescue two injured soldiers. Kenya’s military confirmed the crash but did not give further details.

According to the police official, there were 23 soldiers aboard the helicopter when it crashed.
