According to John Wambua, the father, his nine-year-old son, Alvin, are clearly distraught ever since he learned of the ordeal that struck his mum and sister.
He said Alvin, the couple’s eldest child, had not stopped crying at the sight of pictures of his mother and sister circulated in the media.
“I broke the news to my son on Friday and since then it has been tough for him. It is a healing process,”

The counselling is being done by experts from the Kenya Red Cross.
According to some divers, the weather and terrain have not made it easy for them to trace the remains.
