Two fishermen are feared to have drowned on Sunday night on Lake Kariba and 12 others were rescued after their boat capsized. National police spokesperson Chief Superintendent Paul Nyathi confirmed the accident. “The fishing rig which was on Lake Kariba . . . with 14 people on board encountered some g winds and it capsized,” he said. He said another fishing vessel rescued 12 people but two men — aged 22 and 24 — were still missing.

Chief Supt Nyathi said the Police Sub Aqua Unit was searching for the two men and that the capsized rig belongs to Mr Gerald Vanreinsburg.

In January, last year, one person died and another was seriously injured when two speedboats taking tourists to a houseboat on Lake Kariba collided.

The accident occurred at the Antelope Chalala Point when a Sun Runner speed boat owned by Delta Company and steered by Ozias Maneta (29) hit another boat.
