Passengers Stuck In Vic Falls As Kenyan Airways Fails To Take Off

A Kenyan Airways (KQ) aircraft reportedly developed a technical fault at Victora Falls International Airport on Wednesday afternoon resulting in close to 100 passengers en route to Cape Town sleeping over in Victoria Falls.

The airline dispatched a spare part from Kenya via another aircraft that was going to Malawi which landed in Victoria Falls to deliver it and departed with passengers who were travelling from Victoria Falls to Nairobi.

According to the Chronicle, those who were travelling to Cape Town were booked at a local hotel together with the airline crew as engineers attended to the fault.

The publication further states that the fault was finally attended to and the aircraft was expected to fly off to Cape Town on Thursday afternoon.

The airline’s staff on the ground confirmed that the fault had been fixed and the passengers were already aboard waiting for departure.

Reports of radio host Mark Pilgrim’s ‘death’ spread like wildfire late Thursday evening, but were later proven to be false. Pilgrim has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, which he revealed in June 2022 had spread to his femur, the base of his spine, and lymph nodes, according to The South African website.

Coincidentally, the death of another Mark Pilgrim in the United States had Twitter assuming the worst for the beloved South African DJ. The 53-year-Hot102.7fm old’s employers confirmed he was still alive – and Pilgrim himself (we assume) retweeted a response to the confirmation he was still alive.

Pilgrim has provided regular social media health updates to his followers in his ongoing battle against the dreaded disease.
