LIKONI FERRIES DOWN
In breaking news it was learned that the ferries at the Likoni Channel, linking the island of Mombasa with the South Coast, were out of operation this morning, leaving hundreds of tourists and thousands of commuters stranded at both sides of the channel.
No immediate cause of the halt of operations was given but only weeks ago was a strike narrowly avoided when negotiations resumed between the Kenya Ferry Services and the unions. Should indeed no progress have been made, this could be the cause of the stoppage, although there could also be other reasons for it. Watch this space for updates in due course.
