The Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) has denied reports by Sky News that the person who fell off a plane is London earlier this year had been identified as a cleaner at Colnet Company.
Sky News named the stowaway as Paul Manyasi, but the Kenya Airports Authority says the name does not appear on the airport’s Pass Bio Metric Register.
“A security multiagency team has conducted investigations on the allegations made in the (Sky) news article to the effect that the stowaway worked at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and would like to state that the identity of the stowaway is an open and active investigation and any information received will be investigated to ensure a factual conclusion,” KAA said in a statement.
“The name Paul Manyasi does not appear in the airport pass biometric register,” it added.
The British broadcaster said it had tracked down the girlfriend of the 29-year-old, who has been missing since July, and confirmed that he worked as a cleaner at the airport.
According to Sky News, the pair worked as cleaners at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
