Three fishermen drowned while two others were rescued after their boat capsized at Nyagina Beach near Mbita causeway in Suba North, Homa Bay County.
The fishermen were on a fishing expedition in the waters of Lake Victoria when the accident occurred at 1am.
They had left Kombe beach heading towards Guna beach for their routine fishing activities when they encountered strong winds which capsized the boat as they were approaching the causeway.
Mbita sub-county Police Commander Stanley Atavachi said one body has so far been retrieved as a search mission for the remaining two bodies is ongoing by local fishermen and officials from the Kenya Coast Guard Services.
