Lake Victoria boat tragedy: Autopsy conducted on ten deceased

Reading Time: 1 minute

On Monday, a post-mortem was conducted on ten passengers who died in the ill-fated boat tragedy near the pier beach in Homa Bay, the shore of Lake Victoria, south-western Kenya.

Dr Peter Ogolla conducted the exercise at Homa Bay Referral and Teaching Hospital in the presence of the family members.

After the process, Dr Ogolla said all the bodies had been identified and burial permits handed over to the families.

The departed’s requiem mass will be celebrated tomorrow at a site near the Homa Bay Vocational Training Centre, around 500 meters from Lake Victoria’s beach.

The ten passengers died on their way from Pier Beach in Homa Bay Town to Ndhuru Beach in Mbita Sub County.

There were eight more people on board who were rescued from the disaster.

The incident on Tuesday last week was reportedly caused by bad weather.
