This incident comes just a day after Silverstone plane made an emergency landing after its wheels fell off at the Eldoret International airport.

“Our flight, Dash 8-300 from Lodwar to Nairobi, experienced an incident during take-off and as a result lost the number 3 wheel assembly,” read the statement from the airplane company.

This was confrmed by Uasin Gishu police commander Johstone Ipare who explained that evryone was safe and recommending the pilot for doing a good job and ensuring all passengers were safely landed.

“We received a report that the plane had taken off from Lodwar and had experienced technical problems and that it would make an emergency landing in Eldoret. We immediately activated all emergency operations as required before the aircraft arrived,” said Ipara.

This has become a menace with the government taking zero concerns with the issue as so far no action has been taken against the management of the airplane companies.

For instance, the blame was shifted to the management who had zero initiatives to ensure customer safety was secured and addressed.

Ideally, some of social media users faulted the Government for failing to put measures that manage such companies and ensure customer safety is guaranteed.
