A man and his son are believed to have drowned at Ndakaini dam in Gatang'a district, Murang'a county. However, their bodies have not been retrieved. Murang'a AP boss Josphat Kinyua said Dominic Wafula, 50, and his son Lucano Wanyonyi drowned on Thursday at about 5pm.
"Two people who were illegally fishing at Ndakaini are feared to have drowned in the dam," he said. The police boss said they drowned in the deepest part of the dam that supplies Nairobi county with water.
He said he suspects that Wanyonyi, who suffers from epilepsy, might have collapsed while in the dam and the father drowned trying to rescue him. The search for the bodies is ongoing and police are waiting for divers to be brought in. Kinyua warned locals against fishing in the dam. He said it is risky.
