An 18-year-old man in Nkhotakota has died while two others are  missing after a boat they were peddling capsized in Lake Malawi.

Nkhotakota Police Spokesperson Kaitano Lubrino  confirmed the development  by saying four people including his deceased brother Vumiliya Mang’ango (18), Phonera Biliati (40) and his son Misheck Biliati went for fishing in Lake Malawi during morning hours of April 29, 2014 when the incident occurred.

 Lubrino said after receiving a tip, the police and the members of the community rushed and organized a search party for the three up until on May 1, 2014 when Mang’ango was discovered floating dead on the lake.
