Overloaded boat

Bodies of four musicians who are among nine who drowned in Lake Victoria at the weekend have been retrieved.

Three of the bodies were retrieved earlier Monday while the fourth was retrieved later in the evening during a search coordinated by Kenya Maritime Authority officials.

Dozens of people – including affected family members – have been camping on the shores of Lake Victoria in Siaya County where the bodies are thought to be and where the search is concentrated.

As the search for the remaining five bodies continued, Sports, Culture and Arts Cabinet Secretary Hassan Wario assured the affected family members that the government will fully support them.

Eight of the band members survived when the boat capsized on Saturday as they headed to an island for a performance.
