3 Kenyan fishermen go missing after crossing to Tanzanian side September 09,2020   |  Source: Tuko.co.ke

Three fishermen from Ringiti Island who went missing after going for a fishing activity a fortnight ago have not yet been found, TUKO.co.ke has established.

Kennedy Omondi, 38, Brian Juma, 22, and William Otieno went missing after they left the island two weeks ago for their normal fishing expedition in the waters of Lake Victoria.

The Beach Management Unit expressed fears the fishermen could have drowned in the lake since their whereabouts are still unclear with their mobile phones are off.

According to Suba Sub County Beach Management Unit Chairperson William Onditi, the boat engine used by the missing men was found by a group of fishermen from Goziba Island in the neighbouring country Tanzania.

Onditi said they travelled to Tanzania and were surprised to find the engine separate from the other parts of the boat which were spotted floating on the water indicating it could have split before they drowned and died on the spot.
