A 66 year-old man identified as James M’dala was found dead on Friday with his body still on the bicycle he was using on his way to Mangochi from Balaka.
According to Joseph Lodi, a grandson to the deceased, his grandfather left home for Mangochi by bicycle at around 3am with intent to visit his relatives.
“But at around 11am the same day the man was found dead with his body still intact to the bicycle he was riding at Mzimundilinde Village along Mbera-Ulongwe Earth by Richard Chikapa who at this point in time was on his way back from the garden,” Lodi said.
Chikapa informed the Police about the incident. According to eastern region police police public relations officer Autilia Kumanga, a visit by CID personnel revealed that the dead body had no cuts or any violent marks.
“At the meantime the dead body is at Balaka District Hospital Mortuary pending post-mortem,” Kumanga said. So far, Police say they are not suspecting any foul play.
