REAL PHOTO: Constable Ann Wanjiku identified as the Police officer who returned bag with KSh2.5M ($19,000) belonging to Benson Nickolson at Wilson Airport

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Constable Ann Wanjiku identified as the Police officer who returned bag with KSh2.5M belonging to Benson Nickolson at Wilson Airport. (Read More Here).

A security officer manning Wilson Airport warms hearts after returning over Ksh 2.4Million back to a tourist who had forgotten his bag at the airport.

A UK national lost a bag of cash—Sh2.3 million at the Wilson Airport. Unbeknown to him, staff at Wilson Airport had found his bag and were frantically trying to locate him. The bag and all items were safely returned to him.

An airport employee discovered a small bag that contained around Sh2.3 million ($19,000), some thousands of Kenya shillings, the tourist’s wallet and cards, which he had dropped as he picked up his luggage at the airport.  

In a letter addressed to Customer Care, Kenya Airports Authority (KAA), Mr Benson Nickolson from the United Kingdom, who was vacationing in Kenya and Tanzania, narrated how if he had lost the money, “it had the potential of ruining our lives”.

Mr Nickolson was in charge of all his group’s resources and finances, so he had a substantial amount of cash and plastic money in form of cards that facilitated his group’s movements and comfort, he said.

The incident happened in the middle of their journey, he said without divulging when that was.

“We arrived in Wilson Airport with my entire group from (Maasai) Mara, where we were going to the hotel in readiness for the following day’s trip to the coast,” he said.

Their bags were brought to them from the aircraft on a trolley and passengers were allowed to collect them.

“With the help of our rider, we took our bags and headed to the hotel. When we reached the hotel, I noticed one of my bags was missing, coincidentally it was the bag carrying our cash, valuables and cards. I immediately called our rider who had been with us for more than one week.”

“He checked both vans but could not find the bag. I panicked and asked him to go straight to the airport as I took a cab from the hotel to the airport also. On my way, I called the airline to check if it was left on the plane. They called back, regrettably. I asked the airline staff to immediately check the CCTV of the airport, I was shocked to be told that the airport does not have CCTV.”

Nickolson - who was vacationing in Kenya and Tanzania - says that he had lost his bag containing USD19,000 (KSh2,588,618), financial cards and other valuables at the facility, and what happened next was a surprise for him.

I arrived in Kenya with my family for a three week vacation. I visited various animal conservancies and game parks within Kenya and Tanzania. We traveled by road, SGR and Air interchangeably. As a result, I used various facilities including; Mombasa Airport, Kenyatta Airport, Malindi Airport, Wilson, SGR, Maasai Mara, Serengeti among others.

I wish to draw your attention to an incident that happened in the middle of our journey in Wilson Airport that had the potential of ruining our lives.

We arrived in Wilson Airport with my entire group from Mara where we were going to the hotel in readiness for the following day’s trip to the coast. We had many bags and luggage and as the central person, I was in charge of all the resources and finances, so I had a substantial amount of cash and plastic money in form of cards that facilitated our movements and comforts. (Read More Here).

The bags were brought from the aircraft with a trolley and passengers were allowed to collect their bags. With the help of our rider, we took our bags and headed to the hotel.

On my way, I called the airline to check if it was left on the plane. They called back regrettably. I asked the airline staff to immediately check the CCTV of the airport, I was shocked to be told that the airport does not have CCTV.

At this stage, I developed temporal insanity as it appeared we had no hopes of recovering the bags. While on traffic around Kenyatta hospital, I got a strange call from +254705211*** where the caller identified himself as Mr. Martin, he asked to speak to Mr. Benson and I told him roughly that I’m and I was in the middle of something and would call him later.
