 “Yes, we can confirm the death by drowning early this morning but we’re still investigating what happened,” said Mangochi police spokesman Roderick Maida.

Details are still sketchy about what happened but sources say Ufulu and friends wanted to cool off in the swimming pool after a night of dance and partying.

Lake of Stars, Malawi’s premier international music festival, started Friday and is scheduled to end Sunday.

It has attracted artists from England, Scotland, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia, among others. Organizers say the festival will go on despite the tragedy.

Who gave us authority to judge???? Think if you’re the shoes of Kanyongolos at this point in time. Let’s try to be sensitive here, this is a tragedy we are talking of the loss of human young to be more precise. It’s painful. Condolences to the beareved family. God does not make mistake.

I am a mother too Ngeyi; I understand what you are going through right now, God gave us Ufulu and he has taken him back; it is obviously not the right time to us’ but who are we to question the mystery of the Lord? He trusted us with only 21 years of ufulu’s life, the rest are his. Ngeyi, though I am far away from you physically, my heart mourns with you……. till we meet Ufulu again someday across the river……… His soul is resting in peace.
