I can confirm that the body that was found in the Zambezi River has been identified. Initially family members could not identify him, but his wife later came and she was able to identify him. We do not suspect any foul play. The deceased had a mental challenge, he would see visions of people chasing him. We strongly believe it was the illness that made him jump into the river and there won’t be a post mortem.

Mr Tshuma was buried in his home area, Binga, on Sunday.
