“Starting from today, we do not expect to see anybody going on with activities at the Coast past 5:30pm. All those who are having activities in the sea are expected to conclude them by that time to avoid falling into traps that could end their lives,” Mvurya has said.

Mvurya has also said that activities that take place in the sea should also have life jackets to ensure that people can be saved in case of a boat capsizing.
