The Kenya Ferry Services on Monday morning put a post that did not go down well with Kenyans.
Following a Sunday accident where a saloon car plunged into the ocean aboard MV Harambee, many expected KFS to give a timely update on the rescue mission but this was not the case.
They instead talked about the four ferries at the Likoni channel and one at the Mtongwe channel.
“Good morning, we are serving you with four ferries at the Likoni channel and one at the Mtongwe channel.
“We wish you a blessed and fruitful day,” wrote KFS.
Angry Kenyans demanded an update on the Sunday accident where a mother and her child are reported to have drowned.
This is lame for you its business as usual even after lives were lost in your hands.....Right now you should be giving awareness on SAFETY MEASURES not these barbaric messages of serving us with four death traps — Reuben Gitonga (@reubenmuriithi3) September 30, 2019
Even after yesterday's tragedy?? No grieving for you? You're redefining arrogance and PR nightmare. — James Kahongeh (@_nkurunzizah) September 30, 2019

I have never seen such a mediocrity, at this saddening time this is what you can afford to tweet! — U-GENE (@iamabutojnr) September 30, 2019
Take your good mornings and have it for breakfast, when will you make your services safe enough for Kenyans? Why aren't their emergency services like life guards on those death traps? Did those people drowning off one your ferries satisfy you? ??????????? — JKM (@TheOnlyJKM) September 30, 2019
