Burials have started of the 224 people who died when a ferry capsized on Lake Victoria, Tanzania’s State broadcaster has said.
The bodies of 172 people who died in the boat tragedy have been identified, Tanzania’s Minister of Works, Transport and Communication Isack Kamwelwe said.
The bodies of 37 others have not been identified, he told the broadcaster.
On Saturday rescuers found a survivor two days after the tragedy.
The man was identified as an engineer of the ferry who had locked himself in the engine room.
Video footage showed the man, barefoot and head lolling, being carried quickly along a busy street by medical workers and military personnel as a siren wailed.
His condition was not immediately known.
No further survivors were likely to be found and search efforts had ended, defence minister Venance Mabeyo told reporters at the scene.
However, the total number of deaths may never be known as no one is sure how many people were on the overcrowded ferry, which officials said had a capacity of 101.
The boat tipped over as people returning from a busy market day with their goods prepared to disembark, while horrified fishermen and others watched.
At least 40 people were rescued, officials said.
President John Magufuli has ordered the arrests of those responsible.
“This is a great disaster for our nation,” Mr Magufuli told the nation in a televised address, announcing four days of national mourning
