Tanzania’s government compensates victims’ families of Ferry disaster

Tanzania’s government has handed over $54,727 (£41,600) to compensate families of people who died in last week’s ferry accident on Lake Victoria just off the coast of Ukara island.

Transport Minister Isaac Kamwele gave a dummy cheque with the amount to local officials.

Officials say families will receive $437 for every lost relative, the 41 documented survivors and rescue workers will each receive the same payment.
