A three year old boy drowned in Dande river, Guruve on Tuesday while following his mother who had gone to collect Presidential inputs at a growth-point in Guruve.

Mashonaland  Central police spokesperson Inspector Milton Mundembe confirmed the case.

"I can confirm a sudden death case in Guruve where a three year old boy drowned in a river while following  his mother who had gone to collect Presidential  inputs at a Growthpoint," Mundembe said.

Alllegations are that the mother Precious George  (34)  left her now deceased son Luckmore Tambudza playing with other children and she went to the Growth point to receive inputs.

The boy decided to follow his mother hours later and failed to cross Dande river hence he drowned.

His body was discovered by Cathrine Rimai (31) as she was crossing the same river.

She alerted the police and the body was retreaved.

Police warned parents and guardians  to be on the look out of their children and keep them away from water bodies.
