Commuters using the Mtongwe channel have raised concerns over suspension of ferry services.

Traders using the channel are the most affected by the breakdown of ferries and suspension of transport services.

Mv Likoni, which operates at the Mtongwe channel, has been deployed to the busy Likoni channel following the withdrawal of two ferries,  Mv Kwale and Mv Harambee.

Kenya Ferry Service (KFS) managing director Bakari Gowa said the two vessels that operate at the Likoni channel are currently being repaired.
