Sunday, November 24, 2019 - A middle aged man is feared dead after he jumped into the Indian Ocean while on board MV Harambee Ferry on Sunday morning.

According to a statement from the Kenya Ferry Services (KFS), the incident happened when the vessel was crossing the Likoni Channel from the mainland to the island side.

From CCTV footage seen by KFS, the man left his seat and dived into the Ocean.

The bodies of 35-year-old Mariam Kighenda and her 4-year-old daughter, Amanda Mutheu, were retrieved from the sea 13 days after the incident occurred.

The search for the body is currently underway.
