A 20 year old woman of Zambezi district has died after being attacked by a crocodile along Makondo River whilst fishing.

Northwestern Province Commissioner of Police Hudson Namachila said the body of Mijet Mapeni of Chakujimbula village in Chieftainess Nyakuleng’a’s area was found floating and trapped by the trees about ten meters away from where she was caught from.

Mr Namachila told ZANIS in Solwezi that Mijet’s body which was in a decomposed state has since been retrieved and buried because no foul play was suspected.

Meanwhile, another 20 year old female is nursing injuries she sustained after a crocodile attack along Lunuyi stream in Dipalata area in Zambezi district.

Mr Namachila named the survivor as Marjory Njapau of Kadiombo village in Chieftainess Nyakuleng’a’s area who was attacked by the reptile when she went to take a bath.

He said Marjory survived with multiple body injuries and is admitted to Zambezi district hospital adding that her condition is reportedly to be stable.

  1. It’s a very sad development. I remember how the whole village became quiet when this happened in my village. I shall never forget how a Kamuchapi accused a certain old man of being the crocodile that had killed a woman. The riots , the muzzle loader shots and the burning of the poor man’s house will always linger in my mind.

    • The river that she went to fish or bath from may not be included in the ban. First time I am hearing of this river.

    • @Umuntu,

      You should be the one who should learn to read. The 1st part of the story says she went to fish and the 2nd part talks about her taking a bath in the river. So may be she fished first before taking the dip. Its a sad end for one so young.
