The plane which is operated by local airline Rudufu Air, is stuck in the mud at Takaba Airstrip in Mandera West after skidding off the runway on Sunday.

The incident has been blamed on the poorly maintained airstrip. Mandera West deputy county commissioner Kipkoech Labatt who confirmed the incident, said there are plans to bring in a tractor to pull out the jet after earlier efforts of using a police car failed.

An employee of Khadija Buko, a local flight booking agent, told the Nation that the plane is yet to be pulled out of the mud for the second day.

“We had 30 passengers on board when the incident happened and they are all safe in Takaba town,” the staff, who is not authorised to speak to the media, said.

“We tried to pull the plane (out of the mud) using a police lorry but it was impossible. We will either wait until the mud dries up or we get a tractor,” he said.

At the time of filing this report efforts to pull the plane from the mud have not been successful.
