Confirming the incident was Eastern region police boss Noah Mwivanda who told the star that the plane was not carrying any exam papers as reported by some sources.

He however confirmed that the plane itself was badly damaged as police moved in to secure the scene and move the bodies from the scene.

A similar incident happened at the same place back in April 2006 killing top government officials including North Horr MP Godana Bonaya and Internal Security assistant Minister Mirugi Kariuki among others.
