Passengers going to Likoma Island from Nkhatabay are currently stranded as the Captain who was supposed to drive the famous Illala is reportedly intoxicated.
The ship which was supposed to leave the shores on Sunday Morning for the Island did not take off in the morning after Motal Engil safety team discovered the Captain was heavily drunk.
Scores of stranded passengers who spoke to www.avantmalawi.com expressed their disappointment over the development.
www.avantmalawi.com failed to talk to Motal Engil’s spokesperson Thomas Chafunya to hear their side of the story as his phone could not be reached.
Motal Engil has a concession to run Water Transport Services on Lake Malawi.
