  • So sad that nothing has been heard from them until now...very unfortunate occurrence and she was just beginning her career!

  • Terribly sad for kenya, their respective families and friends. Let's remain positive. Cpt Nyanjui survived a chopper crash and remained a live for over a week. There's hope.
