The body was found by local divers in the afternoon four days after he drowned alongside Stephen Kimuhu 31- a Good Samaritan who attempted to save him.

The body of Kimuhu was recovered the same day and taken to Nakuru public morgue.Upto to Tuesday evening divers blamed depth and coldness of the water for the difficulty in the search mission.

Locals were using ten water pumps to lower water levels.

Grace Nyambura- the mother to Kamau said that his son was humble and had been warned by his brother against going to swim.

The mother said that was it not for the grace of God his brother would have also perished in the water as he tried to save Kamau using a stick.

She called on well wishers to assist her as her family is not well off.

Kamau’s body was taken to Nakuru county public morgue.
