Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko sent special divers to help in retrieving bodies of victims of the ill fated chopper that crashed into Lake Nakuru.
But not all Kenyans are convinced Sonko sent the divers for a noble cause. Skeptical Kenyans poked holes into Sonko’s generosity to send divers to retrieve the bodies.
“Sonko Special Divers Team is currently at Lake Nakuru to help retrieve the bodies of the victims of fatal helicopter crash, so far two bodies have been pulled out from the lake, both males.I trust this team and they have assured me they won’t end their operation without recovering my Friend Mapozi John and the rest….May God Bless You,” Sonko announced on social media.
Netizens asked why the Nairobi governor sent divers too late when three bodies had already been recovered. Some people argued that Sonko ought to have sent his diver on Saturday when he learnt about the accident.
Below are some of the reactions from Kenyans when Sonko announced he had sent divers to Lake Nakuru on Tuesday:
Ian Omosh: it’s too late for this mr governor the bodies can be retrieved by the locals …by today the bodies should be floating somewhere in the lake . this is just mare PR
