This is the terrifying moment a man hangs treacherously onto a helicopter flying the dead body of a prominent businessman, whose murder has sparked an outcry in Kenya.

The crazed man, named as Saleh Wanjala alias Sambaka, defies death as he grips tightly to the landing skis during a public viewing ceremony for the body, because he was desperate to catch a glimpse.

In a moment of madness 28-year-old Saleh refuses to let go even when the helicopter drops to the ground, reports Kenyan news site Standard Digital News.
The pilot, also transporting the bereaved family, does not notice his unwelcome passenger until the public's noise attracts his attention.

The body inside is Jacob Juma, a prominent and controversial figure who was murdered in obscure circumstances last week.

After the video cuts out the pilot had to navigate through powerlines to save Saleh.

He was finally dropped on the Bungoma airstrip, two kilometres away, where he sustained serious injuries on his forehead and legs. Bungoma County Commissioner Mohamed Maalim said Saleh had been admitted to Bungoma County Referral Hospital.

He said: 'He is under police watch. He will be charged in court once he recuperates for endangering his life and that of the pilot.'

Locals at the scene, on Friday May 13, expressed their shock at what they had seen. Siboe Siboe said: 'He was showing us a unique style of mourning the fallen hero, but he went far by displaying his stupidity. That was dangerous.'

While another witness, Pamela Mutoro, said the youth was a poor fellow who might have been trying to display his anger.

It is thought that Saleh was desperate to see Mr Juma's body before he was flown away from Posta Ground in Bungoma after a public viewing. Mr Juma was an outspoken critic of the government, and had even warned on Twitter there was a plot to assassinate him.

He was murdered in Nairobi after a brutal drive-by shooting which left ten bullet holes in his vehicle.

His death has sparked outrage in many sectors in the country, with Opposition leaders accusing the state of being behind the killing.
The 43-year-old had enemies everywhere, and at his funeral service politicians rose to his defence.

Senate Minority Leader Moses Wetang'ula said: 'I want to tell the IG (Inspector-General of Police) for free that the recent tweets of Jacob Juma can be taken as dying declarations and can be used as irrefutable evidence.'

He later said there was a systematic diversion into investigations surrounding the killing which occurred on May 6. 
The incredible footage of Saleh was uploaded on YouTube by David Fwamba, who wrote: 'This is ridiculous. tempting death.'

Mr Juma was later ferried off in a hearse to his Mungore village home in Bumula constituency.
