The plane belongs to a South African couple and was flying from Polokwane in South Africa to Kilimanjaro in Tanzania via Club Makokola in Mangochi, according to Ntcheu Police Station spokesperson Gift Matewere,

Matewere said the couple, Francis Maritz (55) and his wife Christine (53), wanted to stop at Makokola in Mangochi for three days to join their friends that are already there on their planes.

“As they were flying to Club Makolola, they had a problem with the light as it was getting dark around 7pm and they decided to land. They ended up landing at the bus depot, which is still under construction.

“We rushed to the scene to ensure security for the couple. We took them and deployed officers to guard the jet,” said Matewere.

Police said there were no damages or casualties.

Point of correction, that is not a a jet nor a plane it’s a helicopter, please try and report accurately. The story has a lot of errors. Come on guys we can do better these silly mistakes, at the end off the day we what people read facts not fiction.


The owners of the plane should pay the Malawi Govt for the services rendered by the Malawi Police. I hope the money does not go to a personal account,


@chamanga Malawians always thinking about how much they can get out of you! Even in an emergency such as this one! Or is it only Chamanga thinking about $$$$$$$$
