Authorities on Friday recovered 10 bodies from Lake Victoria after a deadly boat accident earlier this week.

Bondo deputy county commissioner Paul Wanyonyi said the bodies will be handed over to Ugandan marine corps.

The boat capsized in Lake Victoria on Tuesday night killing 10 people.

Authorities in Siaya believe the vessel, which was coming from Uganda, was carrying cargo way beyond its capacity.
