CAPE TOWN/PRETORIA - The South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA) has sent what could be a piece of debris from the ill-fated Malaysia airlines flight MH370 to Australia for further analysis.

The debris was found this week on a beach in Mossel Bay.

Flight MH370 disappeared over two years ago while flying over the Indian Ocean.

Neels Kruger came across the debris near a lagoon in Mossel Bay on Monday.

The Pretoria-based archaeologist and an aviation enthusiast says it was the grey stripes on the debris and a Rolls-Royce logo that caught his eye.

“On the site where you find the Rolls-Royce print, it has a very distinct grey colour and I’ve seen many photographs of the Malaysian aircraft. They use quite a distinct grey colour.”

The piece of wreckage was handed over to the aviation authority, which in turn has sent it to Australia for analysis.

Australian authorities have taken the lead in the search for the wreckage of flight MH370.

Meanwhile, the Malaysian government is calling for a search of South Africa and Mozambique’s coastlines for the missing flight.

Debris was found in Reunion Island last July.

The extensive search for the plane that disappeared on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing has yielded nothing.

Relatives of the 239 who were aboard the plane are accusing the Malaysian government of protecting the airline and delaying payment of compensation.
