Kenyan Parliamentarians demand evacuation chopper

The passing of the Nakuru lawmaker comes at a time when the Kenyan Parliament also lost an MP in suspected Covid-19 related complications.

During a session where they eulogized the late Matungu MP Justus Murunga, legislators requested a special evacuation chopper to ensure they are airlifted to the best possible health care should they need to.

"We are requesting and I have managed to talk to the Clerk of the National Assembly about this that we should be given a hot line number to helicopter services just in case," Kwanza MP Ferdinand Wanyonyi stated.
