Divers ready to start the second day of search and rescue operation in Lake Nakuru where a chopper crashed on Saturday, October 21 2017.

Clothes and documents belonging to John Mapozi, one of the victims of the Lake Nakuru chopper crash have been found by divers in the Lake.

But his body and two others are still missing 14 days after the ill-fated helicopter crashed in the lake with 5 people on board.

Kenya Navy and Kenya Rescue Divers who are sponsored by Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko are still engaged in the rescue mission to recover the three missing bodies.

Family members of the missing persons have been visiting the rescue site everyday but they have now expressed concerns over the manner in which the search and recovery mission is taking longer.

Former Nacada boss, John Mututho has blamed the delayed search and recovery mission at Lake Nakuru to poor co-ordination and lack of resources.

Mututho says the County government lacks equipment’s is unprepared  and can therefore not respond to disasters appropriately

He says it is unfortunate that some divers have abandoned the rescue mission due to lack of resources and reimbursement.

The 9 divers, from Bomet County Government and nine fishermen from Fisheries Department in Naivasha yesterday aborted the mission.
