  • The Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) has adopted the "Bungoma James Bond" fad in a hilarious twist aimed at educating Kenyans on helicopter safety.

    The safety campaign is comprised of informative posters that have made been making rounds on social media over the past few days.

    Some of the posters depict the epic photo of a Bungoma man, Saleh Wanjala, who shocked the nation after clinging to helicopter landing skids - while the chopper was in flight - in order to view the body of slain businessman Jacob Juma.

    One of KCAA's posters is captioned: "Tuwache ushamba. Wewe si James Bond. Songa mbali na helikopta inapotua na inapopaa (Let's be civilized. You are not James Bond, Step far away from a helicopter when it lands and when it takes-off)."


    Another poster reads: "Saa ingine tukue serious. Helikopta haipandwi hivi. Tuwache ushamba. Otero wachia movie. (At times we need to be serious. This is not how to board a helicopter. Let's be civilized. Stunts belong in movies.)"



    The posters further depict the safe distance from which a person should approach helicopter.


    The video of Mr Wanjala's dangerous stunt went viral causing him to be nicknamed "Bungoma James Bond" and was later gifted with a free helicopter ride to discourage further stunts.
