Likoni Ferry stampede causes injuries as new ferry stalls

Several people were injured at the Likoni Ferry channel when a stampede ensued caused by one of the ferry that stalled during working hours.

The newly acquired MV Safari stalled underway when it was hit by MV Kwale causing a hole at the side.

Water streamed in MV Safari prompting Kenya Ferry Service to call in a tag boat to pull it to safety pending repairs.

The incident caused a huge queue with those at the channel pushing each other as the crowd grew bigger and bigger every minute.

The stampede led to injuries amid social distance regulations imposed by the government through the Ministry of Health.

MV Safari arrived in the country from Turkey in April at a cost of Ksh 2 billion and was meant to ease transport within the island.
