President Uhuru Kenyatta, accompanied by Governor Hassan Joho yesterday inaugurated the 1.2 kilometer Likoni floating bridge in Mombasa County.

The sea link, the first of its kind in East Africa, will take up most of the foot traffic across the Kilindini Channel by linking Liwatoni on Mombasa island with Ras Bofu in Likoni mainland when it comes into use on 1st January 2021.

The floating bridge will free up the ferry crossing, which has been in service since 1937 to cater for vehicular and cargo traffic without disrupting shipping services.

Speaking to area residents who turned up to receive him, the Head of State said the massive Government investment in infrastructure at the Coast and across the country will open up the economy and create jobs for the youth.

Here are some photos of Yesterday’s event.
