POOR RESPONSE

Returning to office shows KFS’s staff lack of conscience

Ferry tragedy could have been prevented with proper and quick response

In Summary

• Ferry services staff on duty should have been forced out after the tragedy that shook the whole country. 

• It is commendable that the wreckage was retrieved but managerial staff should be held to account.

After many days’ search, it is laudable that the car that sunk in the Likoni channel has been retrieved.

However, it is incredibly sickening that the management of Kenya Ferry Services is still in office. They should have been forced out after the tragedy that shook the whole country. Is there no government agency in Kenya to hold parastatals to account?

How do the KFS managing director and other managerial staff go to their offices comfortably every day? State agencies should take action on anyone responsible for poor management.
