Police drivers retrieve the second body of 12 year old young boy from Seshego dam

POLOKWANE: The Police divers have succeeded in retrieving the body of a 12 year old boy from the Seshego Dam today, August 2022.

This follows the incident that took place on Saturday 13 August 2022 in which two boys aged 8 and 12 allegedly fell into the water and drowned. The body of the 8 year old was retrieved on the same day.

The two children, identified as Kotsema Ramaru aged 9 and his 12 years old friend Kubu Mashilo, both from Seshego Zone 5, were apparently swimming with their friends when this unfortunate incident occurred. 

The South African Police Service Search and Rescue members conducted the search from Saturday and had been hard at work until today at about 12h00 when they managed to retrieve the second body.

Parents and guardians are once more cautioned to ensure that their children do not engage in swimming activities unsupervised and must be wary of this dam as several drowning incidents were reported in the area in the past.

The Provincial Commissioner of Limpopo Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe has commended the Team for their dedication and tireless efforts in searching for the bodies and ultimately retrieving them.

The Police have opened two counts of inquest and investigations are continuing.
