MWENEZI – The skeletal remains of a man who was attacked by crocodiles while fishing in Manyuchi Dam were found last week.
The decomposing body and leg of Charles Bovoza of Mavambo village, Ward 13 under Chief Neshuro were then retrieved and buried at his rural home on Wednesday last week.
Chief Neshuro, born Rodwell Gudo, confirmed the incident and said no foul play was suspected.
"Bovoza used to fish in the dam a lot. Many people witnessed the attack by crocodiles and they alerted his relatives. After about three days of searching, the relatives found his remains which they buried," said Chief Neshuro.
The crocodile-infested Manyuchi Dam has seen many people getting attacked, but that seems to be no threat to the many people – including women and children – who engage in illegal fishing activities every day.local.
