The search for the car that accidentally fell into the Indian Ocean from a moving ferry with two people trapped inside is set to come to an end.
This is after it was announced on Wednesday that the car had been finally found and positively identified after 11 days since the incident happened at Likoni channel.
Government spokesman Rtd Col Cyrus Oguna indicated during his press briefing that the car would be retrieved on Thursday.
"We can confirm to all Kenyans that the car inside the ocean is the one that plunged, but we cannot confirm if the bodies are inside we will only do that tomorrow after retrieving it," Oguna said as quoted by the Standard Digital.
A crane will be used to pull the submerged car out of water.
It has however not yet been officially confirmed if the bodies of Mariam Kighenda and her daughter Amanda Mutheu were inside the car.
Retrieval of the car will bring to an end the search mission which has been going on for the past 11 days since the tragedy happened.
Various stakeholders including foreign divers had teamed up with Kenya Navy to form a multi-agency team which was responsible for the search mission.
