Drowned girl’s body found near Rundu

Police retrieved the body of a 14-year-old girl who drowned yesterday in the Kavango River at Rundu. The body was found close to Nkwazi Lodge outside Rundu.
The girl was part of a delegation of traditional dancers currently in Rundu for tomorrow's Independence celebrations.
The girl, Apolonia Swarts, was from Grootfontein in the Otjozondjupa Region.
Swarts had apparently gone to Rundu Beach, a local leisure spot on the banks of the river, with friends when she drowned.
