5 Feared Dead as Boat Capsizes on Lake Kariba

More than five people are feared dead, while three others were rescued, after a ferry capsized on Lake Kariba, early on Friday morning.

Of the three survivors of the boat accident, two are believed to be Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) officers.

Illegal ferries are the sole means of transport for commuters between Kariba Town and the many islands along Lake Kariba.

NewZimbabwe.com reported sources, including a Kariba fisherman, Chenjerai Zambezi, as saying the boat was carrying passengers and goods from Nyaodza fishing camp to Nyamhunga township in the resort.

Zambezi said the boat sank due to suspected overloading at around 4 am today.

He added the boat had eight passengers on board, and of these five were still missing and believed to have drowned.

The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) had not yet commented on the accident.
