    Something really wrong with the second picture. These people were asked to pose for pictures with the body of the deceased. The expression on their faces does not exude sadness but that of proud people who have just made a catch. Worse still, they had to turn back and face the water for just to accommodate the camera-man. The camera-man was deeper in the waters and note on the shore of the dam.

    Going swimming at 5 am?
    . . . Who doesnt know that the dawn, just as “the night; is dark and full of terrors.” – Lady Melisandre.
    You see, there are unknown hidden things in the deep;
    . . . weeds with hands that coil people’s legs and feet;
    . . . rocks with sharp-edged teeth that bite people for want of their meat;
    . . . mud with love so deep that they never let go of whoever dares step on them; coz they stick.
    . . . and gaping pits, ready to swallow whole, whoever dares walk on them, so to speak.
    The movements of these and other “ghosts” produce waves that are a welcome to drowning. Thus . . .
    . . . If you do not know how to swim, keep away from the water; if you can.
    . . . But even if you know how to swim, in the company of friends, you should always be, and walk as one.
    . . . Never alone should you go swimming, even in the blazing light of the sun.
    Otherwise sorrow, is what will become of your fun.
    . . . And its not necessary to die young!

    What a tragic death……by the way this could not be true in the sense of someone going for swimming early in the morning while on a business trip and may be accommodated at a lodge (Nyasa times tell us the truth if this person was at the lodge) . For sure i believe there is something behind this story and Police needs to come up with a commissioner of inquiry…….truth needs to be told here.

    Only God knows Clement – may your soul rest in peace.

    He went there with others for official duties. These duties definitely were supposed to start at around 08.00 am. And he wakes up at around 05.00 am with all that coldness just for a swim leaving the warm showers in the lodge. And he drowns. Nkutheka ngati sanapepetulane.

        He could have been drunk otherwise as others have observed why leave early morning for swim?
