Tributes continue to pour in as Kenyans mourn the 10 passengers who died in the ill-fated plane.
Captain Barbra Kamau was flying the Fly-Sax Cessna C208 aircraft, registration number 5Y-CAC, from Kitale to Nairobi alongside co-pilot Jean Mureithi.
On board were Ahmed Ali Abdi, Karaba Waweru Muiga, Khetia Kishani, Matakasakaraia Thamani, Matakatekei Paula, George Kinyua, Pinuertorn Ronald and Wafula Robinson.
They all died when the plane crashed shortly after losing contact with the control tower at about 5:20 pm on Tuesday.
The aircraft left Kitale airstrip at 4:05 pm and was expected to land at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport at 5:20 pm.
A search and rescue mission was ordered after it went missing. But the mission was suspended overnight due to bad weather. It would be suspended again on Wednesday for the same reasons.
However, the wreckage was sighted yesterday by an aerial search team.
Barbra Kamau was known to many and Julie Gichuru has led Kenyans in mourning her. Below are messages of condolences from Kenyans.
