Two bodies of children that went missing on Sunday after a boat capsized in Namibia’s Chobe River on Sunday afternoon have been reported found.
Zambezi police commander commissioner Marius Katamila yesterday said a police search team had recovered the remains not far from where the incident happened.
According to Katamila, the rescue team used fishing nets to recover the bodies.
The children were in a boat that was carrying 17 people who were returning from the mainland to Impalila Island.
Twelve people were rescued and the bodies of three children were recovered by the police after the incident.
Katamila said the boat was overloaded with passengers and their goods, which resulted in it capsizing.
He said a strong wind also contributed to the incident.
Although the deceased children have been identified, their names could not be released as they were in the care of caregivers at the time the boat capsized, and their parents are yet to be officially informed.
