VIDEO: Dr. Hanifaa Hamza Yahya, Zaituni Shillah and Life Of Josephy's wife identified as the people and victims who died in Precision Air crash in Lake Victoria, Bukoba, Tanzania

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Dr. Hanifaa Hamza Yahya, Zaituni Shillah and Life Of Josephy's wife identified as the people and victims who died in Precision Air crash in Lake Victoria, Bukoba, Tanzania. 

A Twitter user wrote: "It’s confirmed; A sister, a friend and a genius in content creation @ZaitunShillah was among those who lost their lives in the Precision Air disaster in Bukoba yesterday. Worked with her for three years at SHUJAAZ. A great person with good heart and a very good team player."

A Precision Air plane crashed into Lake Victoria killing at least 19 people on Sunday as it approached the northwestern Tanzanian city of Bukoba, police said.

Tanzanian Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa gave the new death toll, raising it up from three.  

Precision Air said in a statement that 24 people had survived the accident and were taken to hospital. Two other people hospitalized following the incident were injured in rescue efforts but were not on board the flight, the AFP news agency cited an official as saying.

Earlier, local authorities said 26 of those on board the plane were rescued and taken to a hospital.

Officials said a total of 43 people were on board the flight — including 39 passengers, two pilots and two cabin crew.

The domestic passenger plane had departed from the financial capital Dar es Salaam. It later plunged into Lake Victoria as it was approaching the northwestern city of Bukoba.

According to the police, "bad weather" caused the crash as the plane was flying at about 100 meters (328 feet).

"When the aircraft was about 100 meters midair, it encountered problems and bad weather. It was raining and the plane plunged into the water,'' regional police commander William Mwampaghale told reporters.
