Is Ruto’s rogue pilot back in the skies? PHOTOS
The pilot who was charged with assaulting a female police officer after flying Deputy President William Ruto to an event in Nyandarua in February this year is back in the skies contrary to what his employer had said after the incident.
Alistair Patrick Llewelyn posed for photos with Nairobi lawyer Donald B Kipkorir, an ally of Mr Ruto, whom he had flown to an event in Naivasha last Sunday.
The Ruto pilot flew Dr Kipkorir in the same chopper (5Y-DSN), which was in the background during the ugly incident last February that was caught on camera.
Dr Kipkorir had flown to the Great Rift Valley Golf Lodge, Green Park, Naivasha to attend the reunion of the University of Nairobi 1991 law class.
The lawyer captioned the picture: “My pilot, Alistair”.
A Facebook user Edwin Yano wondered whether he was the same man who had assaulted the policewoman.
But Dr Kipkorir responded: “Edwin Yano, Alistair is an excellent pilot and no rogue. Don’t always believe what the media says.”
In February, Kwae Island Development Limited (KIDL), operators of the helicopter 5Y-DSN, said it had subcontracted the services of Alistair Patrick Llewelyn of Saker Resource Management Limited to pilot the chopper on Saturday.
The company said Mr Llewelyn had been terminated as well as the services of his company Saker Resource Management Limited.
