Four people have escaped death narrowly after a chopper they were flying in crashed in Lake Nakuru shortly after takeoff from a hotel in the town.
Confirming the incident, Nakuru OCPD Joshua Omukata says a rescue operation is underway.
Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika says some of those on board were members of her communication team.
The aircraft had left Jarika Hotel and sources say it was flying low before it crashed.
The chopper was to later ferry journalists from the hotel to a Jubilee campaign rally in Narok.
