Relatives raise concerns over recovery mission in Nakuru’s chopper tragedy

Family members of the missing persons from the helicopter crash tragedy in Nakuru have continued to raise concerns over the pace for the recovery of the bodies of their beloved ones.

This even as the search and recovery mission at Lake Nakuru resumed on Tuesday morning (day 4) with family members raising concerns too on the flow of information.

Addressing members of the press on Tuesday, family members called on the National disaster operations centre to call in more divers to participate in the mission.

It will be noted that as on Monday, there were 21 divers involved in the search and recovery mission.

On Monday two bodies believed to be of Pilot Apollo Malowa and Anthony Kipyegon were recovered with only a few parts of the chopper that crashed on Saturday morning also having been recovered.

However, director and chief investigator of accidents Martyn Lunani said that family members will be notified about the ongoing search adding that upon conclusion of investigations into the crash a comprehensive report will be made available also.

“We have informed the family members of the ongoing search and upon conclusion of the investigations into the crash, we shall give a detailed report. But as for now we just call for patience” he said.
