The family which was interviewed by Sky News journalist has denied that the man that fell from the KQ plane in Heathrow Airport is their son.

Contradicting stories

The family admitted to speaking with Sky News but maintained that their son left the village in 2017 and they don't know where he has been.

According to the family, during the interview with Sky News they denied that was their son although when the interview was aired they are on camera admitting that Paul Manyasi is their child.

Paul, who was 29, was a cleaner for Colnet company at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Nairobi. He hailed from Namakara village, Malava, Constituency.

In an interview by a Sky News reporter, the cleaner’s girlfriend said Paul reported to work on the day but disappeared.
