The bodies woman and her four-year-old child who drowned on Sunday at the Likoni Crossing Channel, after their vehicle slid off a ferry, are yet to be retrieved three days after the incident.
Left helpless and distraught, the family of Miriam Kigenda and her daughter can only wait for the officials to get done with the slow recovery operation, which has triggered a massive public uproar.
“How can we allow a mother & daughter to lie in the bottom of the sea over 48Hrs & still run the Ferry Services normally? And why is KFS Board & Management still in office? Why hasn’t the Minister for Transport resigned? What kind of moral degeneration is this? #LikoniFerryTragedy” Lawyer Donald B Kipkorir said in a tweet.
“It’s bad enough that there were no prompt efforts to rescue the two immediately the plunged into the ocean, which could have saved them, and much worse when we are yet to retrieve their bodies” Mercy Kerich, a concerned citizen posed in a tweet.
