Residents claimed that they still harbour fears of using the bridge as they did not understand the technology behind it. 

Nahofia naweza kuanguka nikazama ndani ya maji. Tunaskia ni floating bridge hatujui kama ni tiles za pumzi zimewekwa kule chini – inatatanisha sana. (I fear that the bridge may collapse and I drown. All we know is that the bridge floats, but we do not know how),” one Coastal resident said. 

Some lamented that the operators had not unveiled a clear timetable after the bridge was officially opened for public use on Friday, January 1, 2021. 

Fred Musa said that the walking distance is tiresome and one faces the scorching sun unlike inside the ferry where a passenger relaxes and arrives on time. 

Thursday, January 7, 2021 – Thousands of Mombasa residents have abandoned the Sh1.9 billion Liwatoni floating bridge that was launched by President Uhuru Kenyatta last month and opted to use ferries to cross the Likoni Channel in the Indian Ocean.
