Coffins were lined up nearby awaiting bodies being pulled from the vessel, which lay belly up in the water just metres from the shoreline. "The ferry overturned very fast and covered us," survivor Charles Ngarima told Reuters.

Another survivor, Jennifer Idhoze, blamed the ferry had capsized because it was overloaded. "I was able to jump out of the ferry… That is how I survived," she said. Works, Transport and Communication Minister Isack Kamwelwe said the government was sending special equipment to aid the rescue effort.
