Reports of an airplane crash in the Rasesa area of Gaborone in Botswana were received on Sunday morning, with details about it slowly coming in thereafter.
It is alleged that a privately owned airplane crashed after flying into the club house of the Matsieng Air Strip. Eleven vehicles were reportedly damaged in the crash.
Chris Briers of Matsieng Botswana has alleged that a Kalahari Air Services pilot committed suicide in this spectacular fashion, as he was at a party, and allegedly got drunk and into a fight with his wife. He was then asked to leave.
He allegedly then went to the capital, Gaborone, stole a King Air 200 aircraft and flew it into the clubhouse with the intention of killing everyone there, as well as himself.
According to Nari.co.za, paramedics and firefighters attended to the scene in the aftermath of the crash.
