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.

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.

  14. Yes desperate times need desperate measures, but should we be creating more casualties, by deploying non-Rescue Diver Standards-RDS certified personnel to undertake such risky search and recover manoeuvres?
    The stringent basic minimum of at least 25 logged open water dives with not less than 30 hours bottom time in the past one year, is a good critique point to start with, where were this divers certified yet there is no certifying body in Kenya. Nor do they possibly possess any diver qualifications ratified for equivalences obtained elsewhere but acceptable to Kenyan Rescue Diver Standards albeit non-existent at this point in time ?
    Who performed their pre-dive medical checks to ascertain their fitness to perform the cumbersome duties for the day?
    The only other equivalent certification would be NDOC initiated and conducted under the goodwill of a National Disaster Preparedness Program, by the Kenya Navy Clearance Diving Unit-CDU, unfortunately we do not have such in place at the moment.
    How many of these Sonko-Special Divers have a log mark of having attained the basic 800 yards on the surface in full scuba gear within 25 minutes. Or have ever performed the basics such as Skin Diving Ditch and Recovery, Scuba Diving Ditch and Recovery, Scuba Equipment Exchange, Buddy Breathing Without A Safe Second and Scuba Bailout or better still have undergone and passed the basic RDS training entailing-:
     Practical Knowledge of Pressure Related Accidents
     Practical Knowledge Physiology & First Aid
     Practical Knowledge Marine Life & Environment
     Practical Knowledge of Dive Tables
     Practical Knowledge of Diving Physics
     Practical Knowledge of Boat Operations
    Yes we need such a resource yesterday, but should we really be doing it for the sake of cheap media brownies and whilst at it possibly creating another disaster within a disaster?

  16. Idiots criticism from those who did nothing but think they can open their ugly mouth with stupid comments. Sonko had no obligation to send his team. The government should have retrieved the bodies at the earliest time possible. Keep up the good work, Sonko.

  17. Sonko, as a Governor you should have done better. I also know he may have wished well but it probably didn’t come out as expected.I have been preoccupied with Kenya politics but now have taken a break and this why I can read this story. I also want to make some money and a friend just recommended this site Anyone with experience with this site?
