Stop speculating on KDF chopper crash-Wamalwa tells Kenyans

Former Defence Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa

Former Defence CS Eugene Wamalwa has called on Kenyans to stop all the speculation and misinformation circulating on social media over the crashed Kenya Defence Forces chopper.

According to Wamalwa, Kenyans should allow the investigative agencies to carry out investigations, which will reveal the actual cause of the crash.

He noted that the CDF is the second most protected person in the country, after the President and that Kenyans should exercise patience as they wait for the findings from the probe.

Wamalwa who worked with Ogolla while he was the Vice CDF said the country has not only lost a soldier but also a gentleman. He added that it was an honour to serve alongside Ogolla, insisting that he did his best to serve the country.

The late General Francis Omondi Ogolla died following a chopper crash Thursday afternoon in Sindar area, Elgeyo Marakwet alongside nine other military officials.

The others include; Brigadier Swale Saidi, Colonel Duncan Keittany, Lieutenant Colonel David Sawe, Major George Benson Magondu, Captain Sora Mohamed, Captain Hillary Litali, Senior Sergeant John Kinyua Mureithi, Sergeant Cliphonce Omondi, and Sergeant Rose Nyawira.

The CDF had left Nairobi Thursday morning onboard the Kenya Air Force Huey Helicopter, to visit troops deployed in the North Rift under Operation Maliza Uhalifu, and to inspect the ongoing school renovations works in Chesitet Primary School, Cheptulel Boys High School, Chepoton Primary School, Ksaa Primary School and Sablimoi Primary School.
