KOT slam Kenya Navy for allegedly refusing to rescue fishermen lost at sea





Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) on Friday expressed deep anger following reports that Kenya Navy officials allegedly spotted four fishermen who got lost at sea but refused to rescue them.

This comes following a story aired on Citizen TV Thursday night where Malik Mbwana, the captain of the boat that drifted to the deep sea on December 9, revealed that – after a week – they saw a team of navy soldiers patrolling the sea and asked for help, even water to drink, but they (navy) refused to help them.

They hence stayed at sea a while longer, surviving on salty water and dry raw fish, until 17 days later when they found themselves near Ngomeni village.

They were rescued and rushed to Malindi sub-county hospital where they were later discharged after medical checkup and re-united with their families.

The story has since evoked angry reactions from Kenyans online, with Kenya Navy trending top in the country on Twitter for the better part of Friday.
