She said Kapili’s mood changed after the call and a few minutes later he left a note in his bedroom informing his family that they will find him at a pressure resort near Mansa river.

“Mr Kapili’s girlfriend died on an unknown date this month at Mansa General Hospital and he did not go for her funeral. Mr Kapili’s cousin found a note that his family members would find him at a pressure resort near Mansa river,” Mulele said.

A search for  Kapili was conducted but to no avail.

But on Saturday around 11:00 hours his body was found floating on the river by Webster Mwanza 38 who was crossing the river.

The  body was retrieved and taken to Mansa General Hospital Mortuary for post-mortem.
