Two die after boat they were in catches fire in Lake Victoria


Two fishermen drowned in Lake Victoria on Tuesday night after their motor boat caught fire at Nyandiwa beach, Suba South sub-county.

Joseph Aduda, 30, and 24-year-old Kevin Odera were with two colleagues who survived the ordeal.

The men from Masara beach in Migori county were on their way to Nyandiwa for a fishing expedition.

Nyandiwa beach management unit chairman Peter Otieno said a charcoal stove the fishers  were using to prepare a meal caused the fire.
