The police sub aqua unit has found the body of a female Gwanda Ministry of Education official whose body was swept away by floods on the Msisi river bridge on Monday night.
The Ministry of Education vehicle had two occupants at the time of the mishap. The male occupant of the vehicle has not yet been accounted for.
A police sub aqua team from Bulawayo was deployed to search for the two Education officials who were identified as Ms Samukeliso Dlamini who is the Gwanda District Schools Inspector and Mr Richard Nyandoro, an accountant with the Ministry.
Meanwhile, Ntalale Ward councillor, Coster Ndlovu, confirmed the recovery of Ms Dlamini’s body. The search for Nyandoro is still ongoing. Ndlovu said
The sub aqua team recovered the woman’s body from the dam who has been identified as Ms Dlamini around 5 PM. Only one body has been recovered today as the sub aqua team has aborted the search for the day and they are set to resume tomorrow.
