THE body of Makumbi boat captain Ephraim Daka who drowned on Saturday has been retrieved. A combined team of police and Livingstone fire brigade’s marine officers retrieved Daka’s body from the Zambezi River late Sunday afternoon. Daka, 36 slipped and fell into the water. A police officer who spoke on condition of anonymity said Daka may have drowned because the Makumbi boat engines were running, causing the current to increase around where he fell. The officer said Daka had a deep cut on the forehead, which could either have been caused by the boat’s propeller blades or after he hit a rock.
