President Uhuru Kenyatta has sacked Kenya Ferry Services Limited chairperson Dan Mwazo.

Also fired, are other non-executive board members of the Kenya Ferry Services Limited. They include Naima Amir, Philip Ndolo, Rosina Mruttu and Daula Omar.

Their bodies were retrieved from the sea 13 days later.
