Kenya Ferry Services’ Tweet, Hours After Horror Accident, Causes Uproar

The Kenya Ferry Services (KFS) has been on the receiving end of social media backlash over an insensitive Tweet it posted on Monday morning.

“We are serving you with four ferries at the Likoni channel and one at the Mtongwe channel. We wish you a blessed and fruitful day.” Reads part of the Tweet.

This was barely hours after a tragic accident, in which a saloon car plunged into the ocean at the Likoni Channel on Sunday evening. It is believed that the car had at least four occupants.

And now Kenyans are wondering how they could be so insensitive to post such a tweet following the accident, in which the victims’ bodies have not been recovered?

“Even after yesterday’s tragedy?? No grieving for you? You’re redefining arrogance and PR nightmare.” Said an angry James Kahongeh.
