A man was Friday injured after falling off a helicopter that had delivered the body of slain businessman Jacob Juma in Bungoma.
41-year-old Saleh Wanjala, who is a boda-boda rider, clung on the chopper’s skid as it lifted from the ground.
Despite cries and signals from the villagers, the pilot seemed not to notice the man hanging on the landing skid as the aircraft gained momentum.
After falling from the plane he was rushed to hospital following the injuries he had sustained. The man reportedly injured his hip joint, elbow and also sustained a cut on the eyebrow.
Speaking from his hospital bed, Mr Wanjala claimed that one of his legs got stuck in the plane’s skid and as he tried to free himself, the helicopter began taking off. The daring man told Nairobi News that he was then forced to hang on the plane for his dear life.
Meanwhile, the public viewed Juma’s body at the Bungoma Posta grounds and not Kanduyi stadium as earlier announced.
The bold government critic was killed a week ago by unknown men with his body being found near Lenana School in Karen.
Juma will be laid to rest on Saturday at his family home in Mungore village, Bumula Constituency.
