Bodies of Mariam Kighenda and daughter Amanda Mutheu found inside car retrieved from Indian Ocean

May their souls rest in eternal peace

Bodies of Mariam Kighenda and daughter Amanda Mutheu retrieved from their car that plunged from Likoni ferry, 13 days later

The car, registration number KCB 289C, was lifted out of the ocean at around 4 p.m. on Friday afternoon.

Police, together with pathologists, then proceeded to remove the bodies from inside the car in a heavily guarded exercise where AP officers provide a human barricade around the vehicle.

The process of removing the bodies took over an hour and a half which could indicate that the bodies were in a delicate condition.

A few moments after the bodies had been taken away by the police, religious leaders held prayers at the site giving thanks for the successful retrieval.

Government Spokesman Col. (Rtd) Cyrus Oguna led military and other leaders in a ceremonial tossing of flowers into the ocean as a sign of honour for the lives that were lost.
