The Rift Valley Regional Commissioner Mr Wanyama Musiambo has assured families of the Lake Nakuru Tragedy victims who are yet to be found that the search will not be given up.
Speaking during an interdenominational prayer rally at Lake Nakuru National park, Mr Musiambo told families and friends that the government had no intention of giving up the search any time soon.
“What I would like to assure the families and friends is that we are not giving up the search until we have recovered everyone,” said the RC.
Mr Musiambo together with other religious and political leaders from Nakuru had joined the families and friends of the tragedy in offering prayers on behalf of the affected ones. Out of the five who were aboard the chopper on that day, only two bodies have been recovered.
Also present was the Nakuru County Senator Susan Kihika who lost three members of her staff in the Lake Nakuru tragedy.
Kihika thanked members of the affected families for their patience during the ongoing search and assured them that they were doing everything in their power to recover the missing ones.
“I personally didn’t believe it would take this long to recover the victims and the wreckage. I believed that within 48 hours we would have recovered all,” said the senator.
The Senator also highly eulogized the three young men who had worked in her office saying they had proved themselves focused and dedicated in their duties and what they believed in.
Another leader present was Hon. David Gikaria the MP for Nakuru East within which the park lies. Gikaria assured everyone that he would continue giving his moral and material support as long as the search was ongoing. The MP has since the search started been providing refreshments and snacks to the divers and families who patiently wait at the lake.
Today marked the ninth day since the crash and after the prayers, it is hoped that the search will soon come to an end.
