    Kilimanjaro International Airport

    Large commercial planes destined for Nairobi, Kenya have been diverting to Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA) here from Wednesday, causing a number of speculations.

    The big aircrafts, which were supposed to land at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) inNairobi, were forced to by-pass Nairobi and instead made emergency landings at KIA.

    Rumour had it that the move was due to some advisory against Al-Shabaab, the terror group that has been allegedly launching various bomb attacks on the Kenyan capital.

    However, Mr Bakari Murusuri, an official with the
    Kilimanjaro Airport Development Company (KADCO), stated that the planes that diverted to the KIA terminal did so due to unfavourable weather in Nairobi on Wednesday.

    "We have been receiving some planes from
    Kenya here and the information I got from the control tower is that the aircrafts were not allowed to land at JKIA due to weather troubles in Nairobi," said Mr Murusuri, refuting reports that Al-Shabaab had caused a scare at the Kenyan airport.

    There have been a series of attacks from the terror group in Nairobi following
    Kenya's recent offensive against Al-Shabaab in Somalia.

    Among the planes that diverted to KIA from Nairobi include those belonging to Lufthansa, South African Airways (SAA) and Emirates.

    "It was a normal diversion and KIA has been handling these issues in the past,' said Mr Murusuri.

    Two weeks ago, a small plane that was flying from
    Dar es Salaam to Arusha crashed at a farm house nearKilimanjaro International Airport, when it ran out of fuel after being delayed on air waiting for clearance from KIA control tower to land at the terminal.

    One person died in the crash and the aircraft's pilot was left in a coma and had to be referred from Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre (KCMC) in Moshi to Nairobi Hospital where, according to the latest report, she is doing well.

    Serikali ilifanya vizuri kukataa Mahakama ya kuwashitaki Al-Shabaab kuwa Arusha; Wengetumaliza hawa watu hawana Utu hata kidogo

    Sijui wanasoma vitu gani kweli kutokuwa na ubinadamu

    ni vyema kufanya hiyo diversion kwa faida ya usalama wa anga .... ila sijui impact yake kwa ujumla... positively, this could be an opportunity to attract more tourist to this country iliyolala fofofo, negatively, we may find ourselves such an easy target from haya majambazi ya alshababu

    Usitegemee kwamba watu watachagua TZ over Kenya. Huko nje wanatuona ni sawa tu, tena wanatuita Savanah Africa. Wakija hata they don't come for people, they come for the animals. If kenya isn't sure, TZ isn't a destination neither!
