Two Indian nationals have died on Sunday after drowning in Lake Malawi at Kande beach lodge in Nkhata bay.

The two deceased foreigners have been identified as Dherya Patel, 21 and Aush Patel, 19.

They were living in Mzuzu as their parents were doing business there.

The father to the deceased persons, Mr Chatau Patel said on October, 6, the family travelled to Kande beach from Mzuzu for enjoyment.

In the afternoon of the following day, Dherya and Aushu sailed into the lake by Surrey boat for swimming.

In course of enjoying the nature, the two youths met strong waves which struck the boat that eventually capsized.

The two got drowned right after the incident.

Efforts were made to rescue them but it was too late. They were later taken to Kande Healthy Centre where death was pronounced upon arrival.

The matter was reported to Chintheche police who rushed to the scene.

Postmortem conducted at the said Healthy Centre revealed that the two died due to suffocation.

Meanwhile police in the district are appealing to all owners of beach lodges to make sure that they provide life jackets to customers whenever they want to sail or swim in the lake to avoid such deaths.
