    Why, why waste tax payers money when we all know the obvious? Try shoddy second hand vehicles obtained through shady dealings. If only these vehicles of transportation were acquired through efficiency and transparency these Kenyans perhaps  would still be alive.
    We have similar issues when buildings collapse because of lack of oversight, management and planning. When shall Kenyans learn?? ALL these happenings are because individual greed surpasses the interest of the whole nation. What a shame!!

       I agree. Very few public officials show integrity in their work. Any life lost as a result of neglect is a great shame. I also agree that city councils send out professional teams to insure public safety before buildings get erected. There are so many Kenyans willing to learn and practice skills. Wake up government!!

  • we also like to know more information on the competency of the two pilots — training and the hours completed before assuming their latter duties.

    It is important at this stage that us to focus on the facts rather than follow circumstantial leads on what led to the far the facts are the aircraft was basically new so talk of old age/maintenance is largely out..the weather was the likely facts point to the the mechanical efficiency of the type(Eurocopter AS 350b3) and/ or  pilot error.. the launch of the public inquiry is commendable..but can the public be assured that the (unedited) findings will be made public!! Also the operation of state aircraft i.e. the Military- Air force/Army and police airwing now need to be effectively regulated in terms of their safety of the police airwing has a low safety it has had many incidences and accidents which have gone investigated.(.only that in this case the crash involved high profile passenger) the current civil aviation act cap 394 that exempts state aircraft from regulation of the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority should be ammended so that a special arm be set up to ensure safety standard of state aircraft are maintained..

    when money allocated for repair and accusation of new state- of -the art equipments is diverted into people’s pocket the result is definate.. Our culture is turning out to be our own poison! prepare poison with an assumption to harm others unknowingly it ends up hurting our own self-made poison!
