Likoni Ferry Commuters daily battle with fiery tides–Watch

Mombasa residents using the Likoni Ferry terminus have been the subject of pity from netizens for going through heart-wrenching experience daily when using the channel.

This is after a video that has been shared widely on major social media platforms Wednesday showing mammoth travellers being swept by ocean tides as they try to catch the Ferry.

The Ferry is operated by The Kenya Ferry Services and offers Mombasa residents free transport to cross the Indian ocean creek between Likoni in South Coast and Mombasa Island where majority commute to work daily.

According to reactions from affected commuters, the situation at the boarding point is usually worsened when it rains as the tides become stronger and dirty water splashes on them.

Kenyans online in a hilarious note claimed that the tides might be angry with residents who are yet to register for the hyped Huduma Namba.

Here are more reactions from Twitter:


In 2017, several people sustained injuries after a stampede ensued at the Likoni Ferry channel following gunshots in the air by police.
