Several Kenya Defence Forces personnel patrolling Boni Forest in Lamu County are feared dead after a helicopter crash.
According to a statement sent out on Tuesday, a Kenya Airforce Huey Helicopter crashed Monday night while on night patrol.
“The crew and other military personnel onboard were part of an air surveillance squadron intensifying day and night patrols and surveillance for the ongoing ‘Operation Amani Boni’,” read the statement in part.
Meanwhile, the leadership of the entire KDF fraternity condoles with the families and crew.
A board of inquiry has since been constituted and dispatched to the scene to establish the cause of the crash.
