Speaking on Wednesday, Nduko said that the government might have it rough explaining the delay in recovery of the bodies of the Likoni ferry tragedy victims who drowned on September 28.

According to the security expert, the function might be marred with commotions and disagreements in the instance that the bodies are not recovered by then.

"The Mashujaa Day celebrations might not be very peaceful because what will the government tell the people," he said on KBC English Service's The Big Conversation.

Nduko termed it a major failure on the side of the government and proof that it lacks the equipment to deal with such cases, and has as well not studied the ocean terrain.

He also faulted the government for hiding the truth that it cannot combat such instances, saying that it has instead been giving Kenyans false hopes, well aware that it is incapable.

"The only problem is that we cannot admit. As a government, it is about admitting that we are having in capability and we are going to seek help rather than giving Kenyans false hopes," he added.

The analyst also faulted the government for delaying to declare the incident scene a no-go-zone saying that chances are high that the bodies and car might have been pushed away by currents.

The government has since blamed poor visibility, strong currents and bad weather on the delay.
