At least two people drowned in Lake Kariba while another one is still missing after a boat capsized just after launching from Chawara Harbour.
The boat, which was carrying passengers and grocery stock for a shop at Gache Gache Fishing Camps, was reportedly hit by a wave and drowed.
At least three passengers managed to swim to safety.
Search efforts have so far led to the discovery of two bodies, a mother and her child.
“The boat was overloaded with people and supplies for a shop. It could not hold up when a strong wave hit and it started drowning,” said a police source.
The accident comes just two months after another boat capsized, killing five people owing to overloading.
