George Saitoti and Orwa Ojode Dead

Today is a dark day for Kenya. George Saitoti, minister for internal security together with his assistant minister Orwa Ojode have perished in a chopper crash near Ngong forest just hours ago. The two pilots (Nancy Gituanja and Luke Oyugi) together with two bodyguards (Inspector Tongei and Thomas Murimi) have also passed on.
The cause of the accident has not yet been confirmed. It is an eerie coincidence that on this very day four years ago we lost the then roads minister Kipkayla Kones and Home affairs assistant minister Lorna Labosso. All people on board the plane also perished. The helicopter model can be found here

I would write more, but I just can’t find it in me to continue writing. We have to come together and unite in the face of this tragedy.
