No more bodies found in canoe tragedy


Nearly a week after a hippopotamus charged at a canoe ferrying 37 people across the Shire River capsizing it, Police have said no more bodies have been found.

Search and rescue efforts only managed to recover seven bodies out of the 23 that went missing.

The bodies were found floating in different parts of the river.

Search and rescue teams carry a body 

Nsanje Police Public Relations Officer Agnes Zalakoma said the search and rescue is still on going.

Zalakoma explained detectives from Chiromo Police and teams from Department of National Parks and Wildlife are conducting the search.

Fears have been raised that the missing are likely to never be found.
