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.

O……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………O Going swimming at 5 am? . . . Who doesnt know that the dawn, just as “the night; is dark and full of terrors.” – Lady Melisandre.

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.
