Nsanje Police Officer in-Charge Assistant Commissioner of Police, Kirby Kaunga confirmed the retrieval of the bodies.

He said currently, the search for the remaining eight bodies is still continuing.

“Police and the community along the river have intensified search for the remaining people who are missing,” said Kaunga.

On Monday October 12, a canoe with fifteen people on board capsized at Postal Shire in the Shire River when they were travelling to Mozambique for farming activities.

According to the Nsanje Police Officer in-Charge, four people survived and about 11 people feared dead.

Kaunga said the canoe was being operated by a young man who failed to balance as it was approaching a docking area.

He said the canoe hit the right embankment of the dock thus it capsized before sinking.
