Video Ten less known facts about Kenya’s first female Marine Pilot, Elizabeth Marami

Elizabeth Marami, 28, has made history by becoming Kenya’s first female marine pilot. Born and bred in the coastal city Mombasa, Marami initially studied law at the University of Nairobi, but later changed course and went on to pursue navigation in Alexandria, Egypt for 5 years. “I always grew up knowing that I wanted to do something different, Something out of the ordinary. Being awarded a scholarship to pursue this career was God’s answered prayer…,” she says.

Her job as a marine pilot entails assisting vessels with coming into territorial waters because according to law, vessels entering a country’s territorial waters may not progress to the harbor without officials.

Elizabeth Marami is Kenya's first female marine pilot. She gave a speech during President Uhuru's commissioning of Bandari Maritime Academy.

Video How not to climb down a Pilot Ladder

The video was found on some social media channels in June 2020.

When so many elementary mistakes are made and so many risks are taken, this is exactly what can happen!

It's a demonstrative example of an unprofessional action:
1) Where is the life jacket?
2) No backpack on the shoulders. Use a rope to have the backpack lifted by the deck crew.
3) Where is the rest of the crew (on vessel / on the small boat) for safe assistance?

What other mistakes have you discovered?

We do not put videos of accidents on our website out of voyeurism. We would like to point out that the work of a pilot or a seafarer is always dangerous, especially when embarking and disembarking!
These incidents should be a warning. It can hit anyone out of carelessness.
Dear people, please always be mindful and always think of your safety!
We hope no one was seriously injured.
