Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua’s office has received a redesigned, rebranded Augusta Westland police helicopter.

The chopper will be utilized for the DP’s official and unofficial movements across the nation.

It was previously employed for surveillance.

It was initially painted in the colors of the national police and was registered 5Y- DIG. However, it is now white and is covered in the Kenyan flag.

It is one of the four Bell Augusta helicopters and three Augusta Westland helicopters that were purchased from Italy in 2017 for a total of Sh4.8 billion.

Only one is in use; the others have been grounded since December 2017.

The Augusta chopper can zoom in on people in a throng and read license plates because it was a police helicopter.
