Mr Utton,
it was shocking to grasp news of your tragic death. Those who knew you especially in business were really touched. I pray God grant your MTN family to brace the grief and despair that your death has caused.
May your soul and those of all those in this Flight KQ 507 rest in perfect peace.


What a tragedy? May their souls RIP and may God console the griefing families.

On a sad note and grief,I usher to the bereaved families my sincere condolences on this immemorable tragic incident.The news was really terrifying and left a shock wave to many and mostly to the frequent travellers who usually board the Kenyan Airways like myself.Though we don't want to go to the cause of the catastrophic event we wish the souls of the bereaved families rest in perfect peace.

No Mr Sobatem (Douala Airport Weatherman), one crash is always one crash too many and safety is always first. Airports all over the world close down quite frequently for bad weather.

Hard Questions Asked On Cameroon Plane Crash




Une réaction lue sur le net.

The control tower workers at the Douala airport in La Republique Francaise du Cameroun are a bunch of incompetent, corrupt and unaccountable clowns.

How can you lose contact with a plane after a distress call less than 2 minutes after take off and you do nothing to raise an alarm. You say nothing until more than 7 hours later when the Kenyan airways people from Nairobi call you to inform you that the plane is missing.

This a classic case of dereliction of duty. I guess they are simply imitating their lazy, corrupt, incompetent and unenterprising president Paul Biya.

This is the height of negligence, incompetence and irresponsibility. All of them ought to be fired and prosecuted for gross negligence and dereliction of duty.

But knowing the laxity, nonchalance and the laissez faire attitude that reigns and is endemic in La Republique Francaise du Cameroun, nobody will be held accountable. All the delinquents and culprits will go scot free.

To make things worse it takes the bumbling government about 72 hours to locate a plane that had crashed only 12 miles away from the airport.

How can a country with 2 international airports not have a Radio Detection And Ranging (RADAR) system. This is unconscionable. They cannot say their country is poor because some of their citizens embezzle billions of CFA francs in public funds every year.

This plane crash has really exposed La Republique Francaise du Cameroun for what she is, ..... a no man's land, unaccountable and inept.

Their president Paul Biya has not even extended a word of condolence to the bereaved, let alone visit the site of the catastrophe.

What a country of heartless laggards and good for nothing beer drinkers.

Yours truly.
