Decomposed body of a man floats at Likoni Channel

Another dead body floats out of the Indian Ocean

Decomposing body of a male floats out of the Indian Ocean at Likoni Channel, days after Joseph Mutinda sped off the ferry

Another dead body on Tuesday floated to the surface at the Likoni Channel just days after the tragic accident involving one Joseph Mutinda.

Police are yet to identify the body, however, they disclosed that it was decomposing and that of a male.

Confirming the incident, Likoni Police boss Jane Munywoki revealed that the body had some parts missing.

"The body seems to have decomposed. It has been in the water for some days and no one has come to claim it or report a missing person," Red Cross officials told reporters.

Joseph Mutinda last Saturday drove his vehicle off the ferry and into the ocean in a shocking incident at the crack of dawn. His body would be retrieved hours later.

Senators ask KFS to decommission MV Harambee, MV Nyayo, MV Kilindini

Senators on Tuesday finally released their findings on the tragic incident where Mariam Kighenda and her daughter Amanda Mutheu died after the vehicle they were in slipped off MV Harambee and sank.

According to the Senate Committee led by Kiambu Senator Kimani Wamatangi, the defective ramp was the main cause of the tragic accident.

"The video replays of the incident indicate that the driver and passenger of the vehicle, the late Ms Mariam Kighenda and Amanda Mutheu had not in fact exited their vehicle nor lowered their widows which meant that they could not escape in the event that the vehicle slipped into the sea.

"The committee recommends the halting of the defective ferries such as MV Harambee, MV Nyayo, MV Kilindini until funds are available to procure new ones,” the team held,

“The ministry of transport should ensure that all future ferry vessels have available spare parts within the market for ease maintenance," the committee recommended.
