Kenyan owned ship stranded off Somali coast

10 July 2014, 16:05

Nairobi - A Kenyan-owned ship which dropped off goods at Mogadishu’s seaport and was headed towards Mombasa stranded at a small Somali seaside village in the Middle Shabelle province, according to local villagers, in a report on Harar24.

After experiencing what seems like technical difficulties the ship stranded at the village of Meyraley, situated around 120 KM east from Mogadishu. According to witnesses the ship was subjected to being looted by locals who mainly consist of fishermen after they attacked the ship. It’s now feared that the crew members lives could be at stake due to the area being lawless without any administration.

According to one of the investors into the ship who spoke to Harar24, it stranded at the village this morning due to some technical difficulties. “After the ship stranded some locals aboard boats attacked the ship and began looting, they took different kind of equipments.

The crew members are safe for now, however we fear for their safety and well-being” said the investor. “We are trying to contact elders from the area to intervene and guarantee the safety of the crew members” he added.
