Siaya — Three more bodies were on Saturday discovered in the waters of River Yala near Ndanu falls in Gem Yala sub-county within Siaya County.

According to Gem Sub-County Police Commander Charles Chacha, the bodies were spotted stuck under the rocks along the River bank.

“The bodies were spotted by locals and they notified the police,” he said.

He said that they suspect that the bodies must have been swept from elsewhere by the fast-moving river due to the rains which is pounding parts of the country currently.

“We have rains at the moment, nearly on a daily basis and it is evident the bodies have been rolling down stream as a result of the heavy down pour being experienced now,” he said.
