One person was killed after the aircraft crashed near the Wonderboom Airport.

The South African Civil Aviation Authority's Peter Mashaba says it's still unclear what exactly happened. 

Mashaba says officials are also working to establish the nationality of the passengers onboard the plane.

"That information will be made available as soon as we have confirmed in terms of what foreign nationals were on board the aircraft. We can confirm that there were nineteen people on board, that's inclusive of three crew members. We will confirm the nationalities at a later stage," Mashaba said. 

SACAA says the aircraft was lawfully permitted to fly in the country and abroad.
