Paul Manyasi, the man who fell from a plane in the United Kingdom
As debate continues on the identity of the stowaway who fell from a Kenya Airways flight in June, the matter has brought to the fore a security and humanity issue that has been affecting the aviation industry for decades without a solution.
Apart from the KQ stowaway whose identity is still unknown after the government disputed the contents of a Sky News investigation, without giving alternative information, there have been two other similar incidents since the beginning of the year.
Last month, the frozen body of a stowaway was discovered by engineers on a jetliner belonging to Royal Air Maroc after it touched down at Mohamed V Airport in Cascablaca, Morocco, from Conakry, Guinea.
In April, a homeless man was discovered alive in the belly of an Air France plane at Pointe a Pitre International Airport in the island city of Grande-Terre, in Guadeloupe, a French-governed archipelago in the Caribbean, after surviving a two-hour flight from the French Guiana’s capital city of Cayenne.
Apparently, the KQ incident, which is currently under investigation, is not the first stowaway case from Nairobi. In 1997, the body of a man believed to be in his 30s was found hanging in the nose-wheel bay of a British Airways flight at Gatwick Airport in England on arrival from Nairobi.
