Sunday October 6, 2019-National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga on Saturday ordered the dredging exercise at the Indian Ocean stopped.
Speaking at Likoni channel, Raila said the exercise is interfering with efforts to recover the bodies of Mariam Kighenda and her four-year-old daughter who perished at the Likoni Channel last Sunday when their car reversed and plunged into the Indian Ocean.
