Five people, two Namibians and three South Africans, died Sunday morning in an aircraft crash in Cape Town, South Africa.

Namibia’s acting deputy permanent secretary in the department of transport, Ericsson Nengola, who is also the chief aircraft accidents investigator with the Department of Civil Aviation confirmed to Xinhua that a light aircraft registered in Namibia crashed in South Africa.

“We have lost an aircraft in South Africa this morning. It is registered here,” Nengola said, adding that the aircraft was used in medical evacuations.

Nengola could not give much detail saying he has dispatched an investigator to join the South African team and that he will be able to give more information once his officer gets in touch.
He however said the weather was not good when the aircraft crashed.

Initial reports carried by South Africa’s News24 said the aircraft was carrying a patient, a family member, a paramedic and two pilots. Enditem.
