8 year old Mponela pupil drowns on way fro school

MPONELA (MaraviPost) –A standard two pupil from Mponela 2 Primary school in Dowa on Tuesday morning died after drowning in a well.

According to Mponela Police publicist Kondwani Kandiado, the deceased was identified as Lebison Thabwa junior aged 8-years died on Tuesday morning around 11 am when he slipped into unprotected well on his way back from school.
