Police and witnesses said the chopper was taking off when it came down few seconds later and burst into flames.
One of those injured is said to be the owner of the aircraft and was in the company of another occupant. They are both Zambians and were headed for Tanzania when the incident happened.
Police say the pilot was supposed to land in Mwanza for another stop-over before heading to their country.
Preliminary findings show the chopper developed mechanical problems few minutes after taking off.
Airport CID boss Joseph Ngisa said experts were on the ground to gather more information on the crash.
“The plane crash landed near the fence of the airport and so far two occupants have been rescued and rushed to hospital but it was burnt completely,” said Ngisa.
The cause of both crashes is yet to be known.
