A Kenya Civil Aviation Authority staff on Friday died after jumping from an airport control tower at Moi international Airport in Mombasa.

Moi International Airport police OCPD Joseph Tanui and KCAA Director General Gilbert Kibe confirmed the incident.

In a statement to newsrooms on Saturday, Kibe said the aerodrome control officer II lost his life after jumping from the control tower in unclear circumstances.

The officer, identified as Vincent Koech is said to have jumped from an 86m high control tower after a disagreement with one of his seniors.

The OCPD said the motive is yet to be established

“Koech came from a night shift, relieved and later recalled by his boss. What transpired after they met is still a mystery. We are digging deeper for crucial leads,” said Tanui.

The deceased was on his second year of service since being posted to Mombasa. He had been seconded from Air Navigation Service.
