At least 10 people are feared dead after a boat capsized near Honge beach in Bondo sub-county, witnesses told Standard Digital.

The 10 are said to be Ugandan traders who were last night on their way to Honge beach in Lake Victoria.

According to one of the eyewitnesses, David Omondi, the boat was ferrying foodstuff and it had about 20 occupants.

"The incident happened at around 11 pm and ten people have survived," said Omondi.

The search for the ten bodies is underway as the survivors camp at the beach.
