At least five people are feared dead after a boat capsized on Zimbabwe’s Lake Kariba about 350km north of the capital Harare, in the early hours of Friday.

Three people, including two Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) officers, were rescued by a local fisherman, Chenjerai Zambezi.

The boat, which was carrying passengers and goods from Nyaodza fishing camp to Nyamhunga township in Kariba, sank due to suspected overloading.

Sources close to the incident said of the eight passengers who were on board, five were still missing.
