as the old saying goes,do not drink and drive,so is do not drink and swim

Don’t place too much responsibility on the resort owners. It’s about self control. Swimming when drunk or when you know you don’t know how to swim is at owners risk.


Man is not an aquatic animal. Man leaves on land. certainly not in water. Leave water for water bodied animals lie crocodies, people who grew up in waters as these are more less aquatic animal. Besides I wonder if someone from Dedza or from my area can swim.
