Sniffer dogs to be introduced at Likoni Ferry
The Kenya Ferry Services will soon be introducing sniffer dog services at the Likoni Ferry in a bid to beef up security in an area they have termed as “volatile”.
Mombasa County Commissioner Evance Achoki said that KFS has made the decision after it occurred to them that most of both domestic and foreign tourists use the service that connects the island city of Mombasa and the mainland.
Additionally, at least two police officers will also be deployed in each ferry at all times to further ensure the safety of residents.
KFS also apologised to all those who use the newly-reopened Mtongwe Ferry as it has not been offering the services as intended.
Managing Director Hamisi Goa says that the two ferries operating in the Mtongwe have experienced a mechanical breakdown, insisting that they are working to solve the problem and services will resume soon.
“The process of acquiring a new ferry from Turkey was halted by a court process. The ferry was to be received in Kenya by September,” said Goa.
