MWENEZI – Two
pupils who were doing form six at Lundi Christian High School drowned in Runde
River on Saturday, May 05, in what some suspect to be a mermaid attack.
They
had gone to the river to do laundry and their lifeless bodies were retrieved
the following day.
Police
at Masvingo provincial headquarters confirmed the matter saying they had
received a report to that effect.
The
sciences pupils were identified as Prism Mvere and Douglas Maramba from Rutenga
and Chikombedzi respectively.
They
were day scholars lodging at the mission’s premises to attend holiday lessons.
Mwenezi
District Schools Inspector (DSI) Luckson Zanamwe confirmed the tragedy.
“The
two boys who were doing form six at Lundi High School drowned along Runde River
on Saturday and their lifeless bodies were later recovered the following day,”
said Zanamwe.
Reliable
sources at the school said pupils went to the river reportedly to wash their
blankets and clothes.
“They
left their place saying they wanted to do some laundry but they did not return.
When authorities were alerted, they searched for them at the river but they found
only their scattered laundry and a bucket close to a pool in the river,” said a
source.
A
concerted search by various authorities yielded nothing the whole of Saturday
only for the lifeless bodies to resurface the following day without any sign
the two could have been attacked by a crocodile attack.
Many
people who are familiar with the area now suspect that the two were seized into
the water by a mermaid.
“One
body emerged first but the other did not immediately appear until some rites
were performed. After the procedure, the remaining body emerged but with some
blood stains on the nose.
“They
are clearly victims of a mermaid attack. They are not the first people to fall
victim of such an attack at that place,” said a resident of Lundi business
centre.
