A TEAM of Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA), firefighters and Zambia Police Service has continued with the search for the body of a 28-year-old woman who drowned in the Zambezi River after she was swept away by a strong current near Dry Manzi Recreation Centre in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park on Saturday.
Southern Province deputy commissioner of police Bonny Kapeso said the team has stepped up the search for the body of the woman identified as Marian Nyendwa.
Mr Kapeso also said police have retrieved two bodies of people who drowned at the Victoria Falls on Saturday.
Mr Kapeso said police officers on Sunday afternoon retrieved the first body, which is yet to be identified, while the other found yesterday had been identified as that of Junior Bwalya, 18, of house number MC 54 Maramba Township.
“I want to urge people to be careful whenever they are in the park and people should always seek professional help when in the national park area by asking for tour guides,” Mr Kapeso said.
