The Star (Kenya) - - News -

Lake Vic­to­ria Basin Com­mis­sion boss Ally-Said Matano (pic­tured) has ex­pressed con­cern over deaths caused by ac­ci­dents in the lake. About 5,000 peo­ple die an­nu­ally. Causes in­clude un­sta­ble boats, bad weather, over­load­ing, lack of safety gad­gets and poor sea­man­ship. In June, nine mu­si­cians died when their boat cap­sized off Ndeda Is­land.
