The government has been forced to swing into action to stop swimming and any other activities at the beaches after Christmas incident. Salim Mvurya, the Mining, Blue Economy and Maritime Affairs CS, has banned activities at the beaches.
The announcement by Mvurya has come after an accident took place on Christmas at the Coast. Boat riding at the Coast turned tragic after three people lost their lives after their boat capsized.
Mvurya says a precaution like the recent one will help the government in preventing incidents like the one which was witnessed on Christmas day. He says the measures will strengthen safety at the coast and prevent unnecessary accidents that can claim lives.
“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.
