There was panic in Nairobi earlier today when initial reports filtered in that Internal Security Minister George Saitoti and Police commissioner Maj Gen Hussein Ali had been involved in a plane crash.
However later clarifications indicated that the police commissioner was only bruised and even talked to the press and that the internal security minister was in a seperate plane. News on the incident is however still scanty although the helicopter that crashed was carrying journalists as well on a tour of police stations in the Rift Valley.
Other reports say that Internal Security Assistant minister Orwa Ojode was badly injured in the accident.
The accident happened in Kapsabet, Rift Valley.
