—A 21-year-old man has been killed by a crocodile on Lake Bangweulu.

Brother of the deceased, Paul Mwewa, 26 identified the victim as Steve Makanga  of Mwamfuli village.

Mr Mwewa told ZANIS in Samfya that his brother went missing along the shores of Lake Bangweulu on Mbabala island and his dismembered body was only discovered and retrieved the following day.

Mr Mwewa said police assisted in the recovery and transfer of the
body from Mbabala to the mainland Chipepa village in Samfya where the
deceased originally hailed from and has since been buried.

This is the second crocodile attack recorded in Samfya district this
year after an earlier attack on a woman on the banks of Lake
Kampolombo where only a leg was recovered for burial a month ago.
