Six Bodies Found After Boat Accident Off Kenya Coast

Rescuers have reportedly recovered six bodies in Kenya’s coastal Lamu region after a boat carrying a politician and his family capsized over the weekend.

Local politician, Shekuwe Kahale, set off with three other adults and eight children for Lamu Island on Sunday, but their boat was reported to have sunk in turbulent waters.

Lamu county commissioner Joseph Kanyiri said a rescue team retrieved Kahale and the ship’s captain alive and also recovered the bodies.

In June, ten people died in the area after a passenger boat capsized.
