5 people perished when helicopter crashed into Lake Nakuru on Saturday October 21st. Sonko’s friend Mapozi John was among those who in the accident.
“I am deeply saddened by the death of five young Kenyans this morning arising from the Lake Nakuru helicopter accident that has left the nation in shock.I was personally known to Captain Apollo Malowa who has flown me on many occasions, a truly dedicated serviceman who served this great nation selflessly.
“Mapozi John and Sam Gitau have been personal friends for a long time, and were true patriots and dedicated servants of the people. They were not only ardent supporters of President Uhuru Kenyatta and myself, but also worked tirelessly in the last and the ongoing campaigns. Mapozi John was looking forward to meeting me today for the ongoing presidential campaigns at Kajiado and Narok. However, God had another plan over his life.
“Indeed the demise of Anthony Kipkoskei and Venorica is a big blow to their families, friends, the Jubilee family and Kenya as a whole,” Sonko wrote after receiving news about the crash.
Only three bodies of the five on board the ill-fated chopper had been recovered by Monday afternoon. The two intact bodies recovered were those of Anthony Kipyegon and pilot Apollo Malowa. The third body had been mutilated and could not be immediately identified.
