A car suspected to have been carrying Mariam Kighenda and Amanda Mutheu has reportedly been located in the Indian Ocean and the retrieval process which has been on for the last ten days could soon be coming to an end.
The exercise which has attracted the wrath of Kenyans online has since taken on board eight South Africa divers who have been contracted in conjunction with the Kighenda family who have already spent millions in the process.
The divers contracted from SubSeas Services, a commercial South Africa diving company, to help retrieve Mariam and the four-year-old Amanda, are working in the mission led by the Kenya Navy.
Mariam Kighenda and her four-year-old daughter, Amanda, drowned on the 29th of September 2019 after their car slid off the Harambee MV ferry to the Likoni channel.
Weather challenges have been said to be hampering the operation to retrieve the bodies but the arrival of the South African divers raised hopes.
According to authorities who spoke to the media, the bodies of the two Likoni tragedy victims and their car is likely to be retrieved in the next 24 hours.
Pathologists have, however, warned that the condition of the bodies might graphic considering the duration they have had to stay inside the ocean since the day the car slid off the MV Harambee, not forgetting the underwater animals.
Authorities around the sea have made it public that they have located an object that looks similar to the car Mariam and Amanda drowned in and have photos to that effect so they are preparing to embark on the retrieval process at any time.
Family and friends of the Likoni tragedy victims continue to gather around the Indian Ocean in the hope of finally finding closure of finding the bodies of their loved ones.
