Five people who went fishing have drowned in Lake Malawi in Nkhatabay district after a boat they were sailing in capsized.

According to reports reaching this publication, the five drowned fishermen and Emmanuel Salewa, who has survived, went to the lake on Saturday for fishing.

It is reported that as the six fishermen were in the line of duty, strong Mwela winds started pushing them northwards until they failed to take control over it and the boat capsized.

Lake MalawiMalawi24 understands that the survivor clung to the boat until it reached shallow waters.

  1. Everything has got its’ own time thus how our fellow malawians have died.Now to all fishermen you are advised to go for fishing whenever the wind over the lake is calm broadcasted by meotelogists.Fishing is business people make alot of money but if you are told that the weather is bad over the lake,you shouldn’t dare to go fos fishing because life is more important than fishing.
