The government, this morning, intensified its efforts to trace the other missing right people and this has born fruit, albeit tragically.

It's now confirmed that the death toll has risen to five people after three others have been discovered this afternoon in the vast lake.

Efforts are still underway to ensure that everyone that was on the ill-fated boat is accounted for despite the trauma.

The boat is said to have been carrying building materials when it capsized as it had just left Pier Beach.

Boat accidents where they capsize have been on the rise in the Kenyan waters in the recent past and this is not clearly known why.
