Three fishermen have drowned in a section of Lake Victoria waters at Aneko beach in Nyatike sub-county, Migori county.
The three fishermen identified as Juma, Kevin Otieno and Obonyo Andiwo drowned as they were coming out of the lake when their boat capsized.
Area Chief Okoth said that only one of the bodies, that of Kevin Otieno has so far been retrieved.
“We have commenced the search of the other two bodies and believe that we will find them,” he said
The administrator has also called on the fishermen to avoid the waters now that the volume of water has risen as a result of heavy downpour in most parts of the country.
“I want to urge our fishermen to be careful whenever they go on their fishing activities especially now that the volume of water has increased due to the heavy downpours,” he added
