“As usual, we went to check if we had caught any fish, when we were trying to pull the net we felt that it was very heavy then we discovered that we had caught a dead body,” said Mwachande.
He further said that they went to inform the village headman of the area, Village Headman Mwanyeska, who ordered them to bring the body out of the lake. Confirming the development, Village Headman Mwanyeska said that the fishermen found the dead body and he informed the police on the incident.
“It is true that fishermen found a dead body in the lake and I informed the police who ordered us to bury the unidentified woman as they could not do anything as the body was smelly,” said Mwanyeska.
