“While they were in the water, the deceased boy shouted for his siblings to look at how well he was swimming and he went under the water and never came back up,” said Shikole.


Shikole concluded that an inquest docket has been opened with the Ongwediva police to determine the cause of death, but stated that no foul play is suspected at this stage.
