Colnet limited cleaning company, which is contracted to offer cleaning services at JKIA has disowned stowaway Paul Manyasi.
Manyasi fell off a KQ Boeing 787 aircraft from Nairobi and landed in Offerton Road, South London.
Colnet has distanced itself from knowing Paul and in a statement by Chege Kariuki, Managing Partner, Colnet Limited.
Colnet is aware of the incident by way of fact that there were investigations carried out on the stowaway incident and the company has provided all its employees’ records and information to the investigative authorities which confirm that there is no employee by the name Paul Manyasi. This fact can easily be ascertained by KAA.
For an employee to work in the restricted areas of the airport, he/she requires a special pass which is only issued after thorough vetting by the KAA authority. There are records of the passes issued and all Colnet employees are accounted for without failure at the end every shift and we can confirm without a doubt that we don’t have, and have never had Paul Manyasi as an employee,’ the statement reads in part.
Here’s the statement
According to a woman, Manyasi was in a relationship with, she said she they were employed by Colnet.
I CALLED HIS PHONE AND IT WAS OFF. WHEN WE CAME IN THE MORNING THE FOLLOWING DAY THE SUPERVISOR CALLED US AND TOLD US THERE IS SOMEBODY MISSING. [THE SUPERVISOR HAD TOLD THEM] WE ARE NOT SURE OF THE PERSON SO WE KEEP IT A SECRET UNTIL WE KNOW THE PERSON.
When she was shown a computerised photo of Paul, she said,
THEY LOOK ALIKE BUT PAUL WASN’T DARK – NOT DARK – BUT THE FACE RESEMBLES PAUL.
The two were in a serious relationship and while talking about the man she loved, she said,
PAUL WAS A NICE GUY. HE WAS JUST A JOVIAL PERSON. I JUST LIKED HIM THE WAY HE WAS. WE HAD AGREED ONE DAY MAYBE WE COULD MAKE A FAMILY. I JUST FEEL LIKE I LOST SOMEONE WHO I LOVED SO MUCH – YES, I MISS HIM.
