Dismissing the claims on Tuesday the company stated the 29-year-old man identified as Paul Manyasi was not a staff member as he did not appear in JKIA's Biometric Register in which every employee is registered.

"All staff working in the airport require access pass. The name Paul Manyasi does not appear in the airport pass Biometric Register," said the company in a statement quoted by The Star.

KAA went further to term the allegations as those without ground since together with teams from multiple agencies they had conducted investigations and the name of the man appeared nowhere in the JKIA staff register.

The authority went ahead to state that the investigation on the identity of the man is active and any new information unearthed will be investigated to arrive at a factual conclusion.

"We wish to reiterate that safety and security within our airports remain our foremost priority," said the Authority.

On Monday Sky news noted that the stowaway worked for Colnet Cleaning Services as a cleaner at JKIA and lived in Mukuru kwa Njenga.

On a fateful day, Manyasi is said to have entered the undercarriage of a KQ airliner to be able to fly without papers.

However, when the plane released its wheels for landing at Hearthow he fell 3,500 feet with a thud and his body left a crater.
