Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta has visited the Kenya Ferry Services in a move to check out the problems faced by Kenyans using the Likoni Channel on a daily basis.

President Kenyatta Monday visited the Kenya Ferry Services headquarters and met senior officials.

After the meeting, the President toured the parastatal’s offices in Likoni, Mombasa county, and used the ferry to cross the channel.

He was accompanied by Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala and Kenya Ferry officials.

Old vessels, which are the only way to the South Coast, have had frequent mechanical breakdowns and are costly to maintain.

The government’s plan to build the Dongo Kundu bypass in a bid to decongest Mombasa and offer an alternative route to the South Coast are at an advanced stage.

An extra solution to the congestion is the proposed construction of the Changamwe by-pass that will link the western part of Mombasa and the North Coast.

Kenyans have suffered from consistent breakdown of ferries as well as delays due to congestion. The tourism sector has also suffered severely from the delays felt by the ferries not working properly.
