A vehicle has been spotted at Likoni channel — Cyrus Oguna

Government spokesperson Cyrus Oguna on Wednesday stated that the vehicle that slipped off the ferry at the Likoni channel on September 29, 2019, might have been spotted.

Speaking to journalists, Oguna however said that he could not fully confirm if it is the actual car since they have to verify the number plate first.

Further, he added that Kenya Navy divers had reported seeing a ‘vessel’ that resembles a car but it is yet to be retrieved.

Oguna said that they were in possession of some photos taken by special underwater cameras but were still in the process of analyzing the data.

He expressed hope that the exercise was coming to an end since there is a high probability that the car that plunged into the ocean had been located by the divers.

Asked about the whereabouts of Mariam Kighenda and her daughter Amanda Mutheu who were in the car, Oguna said the divers could not see inside the vehicle.

He also took a swipe at the Swedish diver who boasted that he could retrieve the car within two hours.

"There are people who came, acting as if they could recover the bodies, but they were unsuccessful and went," he said.

Adding: "We have made all efforts to search for the bodies and the car."

Oguna told journalists that he would give a comprehensive statement once the registration number of the vehicle has been identified.
