The salon car alleged to have slid off the ferry into the Indian ocean was spotted at 58 metres deep by the foreign divers, who flew into the country after efforts by the Kenya Navy to locate the vehicle and the bodies of the victims hit a snag.The ill fated car retrieval operation has taken 12 days, the Navy team having a successful recover on the 13th day.The process was claimed to have delayed due to traffic at the ferry channel and strong currents currently being experienced in the deep sea according to the Government spokesperson Cyrus Oguna.
