Two children aged five and three have died in Balaka district after drowned in a stream on Monday.

Police publicist sub-inspector Joseph Sauka says the children met their fate when they went to swim at Kadyaukaname stream just nearby their houses without the knowledge of their parents.

According to Sauka the two children from the same family, left for the stream with their three friends without the knowledge of their parents.

“While swimming, the deceased went to the deep area of the stream where they failed to swim and drowned; and were spotted by the father of one of the deceased Mr Nanji Moses, 36 who went to the stream to bath after applying chemicals to his cotton garden”.

Postmortem conducted at Balaka District Hospital revealed the children died because of suffocation.

The deceased were both coming from Majawa village, in the area of Sub Traditional Authority Matola in Balaka district.

Sauka says Balaka district has registered a total of thirteen deaths due to drowning in this rainy season alone.

Meanwhile, Police in the district are appealing to parents and guardians not to allow children leave their homes without their knowledge.
