The pilot of the helicopter Robinson 44 with Governor Samuel Tunai has blamed the accident on high altitude and bad weather.
Speaking to Hello News, he said that there was no mechanical problem and that nobody had been injured as all of them came out of the chopper safe and sound. He further added that he has been instructed not to speak to the media.
The helicopter had been hired from the Mara Elephant Project and was expected to ferry Narok County Governor Tunai, Narok East MP Lemanken Aramat, and their colleagues.
The Kenya Civil Aviation Authority has also launched a probe into the accident. The KCA Director General Captain Gilbert Kabage, while speaking to the press, said that the public would be notified once the investigations are concluded.
