Three children drowned at a Dam in Nyahururu, Laikipia County on Sunday.
The children are reported to have gone to Nyahururu gold Club in a bid to see Deputy president Ruto’s chopper.
Deputy President Dr William Ruto had gone to a funds drive at Ndaragwa township in the neighbouring Nyandarua County, but landed at the golf club before proceeding on road to Ndaragwa township.
A neighbor reported that the children aged 9 and 12, may have decided to swim after missing to see the chopper they had gone see.
“We suspect that the twins decided to swim at the dam after failing to see the chopper. The third boy drowned as he was trying to rescue the two,” said Susan Wambui
Igwamiti Assistant County Commissioner Wambui Irungu said the twins aged 9, dived into the dam to swim but were overpowered by the water before their friend, who was also overpowered, decided to rescue them.
