Out of the 25 bodies that have been retrieved from the River, only two have been claimed by their families.
It is alleged that the 25 bodies have been retrieved from one spot in the river.
Speaking to the media, Siaya County Health Executive Dismas Wakla said "What worries us is why these bodies are being retrieved from one spot in the river. We hope the authorities will come to the bottom of this mystery,"
On the other hand, Governor Cornel Rasanga said that Yala sub-county Hospital morgue has incurred Sh503,400 in costs to preserve the bodies.
He said "In addition, the county government has incurred other costs to support the ongoing investigations,"
Rasanga said that the recovery of such a large number of bodies over the last four months from River Yala had sent shockwaves to residents of Siaya.
