It has been months since the fateful chopper crash at Lake Nakuru that took the lives of five people.
The bodies of pilot Apolo Malowa, Antony Kipyegon and Veronica Muthoni were all retrieved.
Divers have failed to retrieve the bodies of Sam Gitau and John Mapozi since the tragedy occurred in October last year.
On Saturday, a banana stem was planted on the shores of Lake Nakuru as a sign of farewell to two the victims of a helicopter crash whose bodies have not been retrieved.
The family of Gitau and Mapozi held a mass on the shore of the lake and plant a banana stem there as is required by tradition.
“It’s unfortunate that the body of our beloved son cannot be found. Our hopes of finding him have turned into frustration. But we are still praying for a miracle to happen,” Gitau’s aunt Elizabeth Njeri said in a past interview.
Susan Kihika paid tribute to the two, “Rest In Peace Comrades!! We truly loved you but God loved you more!! Shine on your way wonderful friends!! Forever in our hearts.”
Politicians were in attendance for the funeral that saw hundreds attend. tears rolled freely as Gitau and Mapozi’s eulogies were read.
“It’s unfortunate that we will not see our friends again. It’s been hard for us to come to terms. We pray that may God comfort the five families and pray for His strength,” Senator Kihiga said.
Here are some photos from the sad farewell service.
