There was panic after the biggest and oldest ferry MV Nyayo with hundreds of commuters on board was pushed by heavy tides off the Likoni channel towards the deep sea.

The ferry developed mechanical problems at 7 am and was later towed to the main Island.

"To all our customers, beware the sea is very rough, heavy currents experienced due to heavy rains. Landings are rough and tricky. Be vigilant", the Kenya Ferry Services said.

On Monday, Six people died after a perimeter wall collapsed on their house in Kizingo, Mombasa.

Bodies of the six, among them three children and their mother, and the woman’s nephew, were trapped in the debris for hours before they were retrieved by police, Kenya Red Cross Society officials and the county inspectorate team.
