In an incident that has left villagers at Nganunu under Chief Mapanzure shell shocked, 2 teenage boys from the same family drowned while taking a bath in one of the chrome pits which was left uncovered by local miners.
The bodies are yet to be retrieved.
Details on when the incident happened are still sketchy, but Chief Mapanzure confirmed the incident saying the two boys, one doing form 6 and the other doing form 3 belong to the same family and had overstayed their visit to their rural home due to the lockdown.
Chief Mapanzure however said the family is considering conducting traditional rituals arguing that is the only way to retrieve the children alive.
