Braai ends in tragedy as Zimbabwean man drowns while colleagues take videos. A Zimbabwean man believed to be in his early 30s drowned in the Msunduzi Dam in Pietermaritzburg KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa .

  • Shame, bt y pipo are so passive to the extent of not able to detect a danger. Kudakwa here or mafaro anenge akawandisa.

  • Its high time we adopt Egypt law of taking selfies and photos of an accident or during emergency as a crime.

    • Well said Lassie, i cant believe this incident no decency at all

    • Unotoona munhu musvinu ari busy kutora photo nevideo paAccident vanhu vakuvara vachida rubatsiro,Mwari tibatsirei

    • No situations differ , if you take a video that leads to help its good , but in this case they did not well I guess

  • Its so sad. How can someone have the guts of taking a full video when someone is dying instead of helping.

  • So these people are all over our country instead of going home to enjoy the bumper harvest?

    • what do you about bumper harvest. you can go there you are free no one will bother you

    • What!!!!! Lol

    • Out of all the people u come from Binga, when ure in South Africa, u call yourself a Zulu,

    • Themba ndlovu? there is no way u r a south african thats a Zimbabwean ndebele name!!

  • Kumwe kufarisa so ka. They saw he cldnt swim vakuti huya huya, evil people, I’m so so sad 😭😢

  • sekuseka.DEAD!

  • thoz guys vachaita sober n it wl haunt fr d rest of their lives

  • Technology is the devils agent …ukasara ne video bhururu wako afa wagonei ??? Its nonsense uda kunzi wa upload nyaya chete fuck those guys if they ever call themselves his friends may a worse fate follow em

    • i think video yaizoshand seumbowo kuti havana kumuuraya akafira mumvura

  • There are stupid people on this planet really

  • ,so sad

  • Those are the moments were heroes are created..but unfortunately there was only a bunch of drunks with no understanding of the dangers of water…

  • 🙆🏾‍♂️

    • dzakaenda kunoswimmer or kunotsvaga bag idzi?

    • Wid Nyoni kunotsvaga bag bvaazomboti rega ambotandara achi swimmer
      I bet you’d do the same if I were drowning 😆😂

    • iwewe unombofarisa ka, black people don’t swim

    • Hahahahaha true that man
      Stay away from the shore especially when drunk is the rule for us black people

    • probably those guys meet kuIndustry yavo n don’t know each other well enough to risk drowning

  • Pipo of today they worse than animal’s.

  • What I observe is most of these guys can’t swim at all. One guy insists the guy is drowning but no one takes action. Someone even mentions “kuti handina short “!? They just can’t swim! The best they could have done, was to quickly find someone who can swim as early as possible when they noticed he was struggling. Instead they chose to record a video & do commentary. That is sad. In other countries it can be taken as homicide. If he didn’t make it may his soul rest in peace.

    • Homicide how?

    • If it is determined that you can swim and were negligent in observing another person drowning and chose not to help

    • I have seen people prosecuted in some countries for recording videos instead of helping in fatalities

    • Shocking.

    • Homicide??

    • Watching someone die when you hv all the possibilities of saving the person surely sounds criminal to me. It raises many questions….

    • Its a crime.

    • Zvokurudzirwa kuti kana usingagone kuswimer usabatsire arikunyura. Pluz munhu awe kunyura haasi wekubatsira kana achirinepower cz akakubata haakusiye mogona kutonyura mese

    • inogona iri njuzu be careful guys you dont just plunje to rescue munhu unosaramo idziva iro

    • King Nustra ur 100% correct, hw cn someone prefare to take a video rather helping, thy deserve prosecution fr real. Nonsence.

  • Friends like these are a rare breed of highly sophisticated lunatics with a very strong rural background.

    • Don’t blame a rural background…urbanites can do the same…they are just some evil, heartless people

    • I think you are the worst Lunatic of them all do u think to be born in mbare makes you better than other pple , otherwise these friends saved their lives

  • Ok these pple could have saved their collegue imagine taking a video wen some1 dying wat has happened to people our phones are making people idiots no normal person would be so stupid wat had happened to ubuntu people instead of offering help they are busy clicking away on their phones so they can show the entire world their idiocy

  • This is absolutely sad to Zimbabwe ,a nation highly regarded educated people .Perhaps due to oppression at home I suppose our brothers and sisters get carried away when they are beyond our boarders doing wrong things trying to show people they found in foreign land that themselves are placed In terms of skills hence not knowing some risk , Personal I have seen this frequently some of our fellow brother were shoot and killed in attempted robery in one of the countries we share with coz they undermine security,

  • Just sad, my chomies watched Calisto achifa

  • They let him drown.

  • Idiots,such action must be criminalised and the morons rot in jail.so sad .

  • Chantelle Green-Thompson

  • Munyaradzi Ngwenya

  • Johannes Matemavi

  • Those guys should be charged with murder how can you say handina short whilst someone is dying seriously kukoshesa your trousers kudarika hupenyu hwemunhu maZimba so zvokwadi bodo

    • Nyangwe dai akangokurura zvese hapana aimbozvitarisa tokoshesa hupenyu hwemunhu ,apo vakakonewa zvachose kutoseka munhu achifa

    • Ko sei kune ma swimming trunks. The reason anofanirwa kufloater trousers rinowedzera weight wodzika nemvura. If u listen vazhinji vacho vaisatogona kuswimmer n it seemz it was a competition since vanga vari two

    • seriously you are talking about a swimming trunk pane munhu arikunyura ayas

    • tauta hako tatenda some ppl are senseless

    • Wakashaiwa simba rokubatsira neppse pawanogona, kwaakuwana simba rekusimudza phne kutora video, ngazvisungwe zvifire mujeri.

  • Vovo Nyelaz

  • Asshole’s….

  • this myt be one of the sad moments but the question is why was he in waters if he couldn’t swim????don’t just blame people as someone could have created his own personal problem expecting others to assist

    • true

    • Exactly

    • The guy could swim,,,, but got tired, it happens

    • yes aidei imomo

    • U are bunch of clouns. So u cant save a frend coz apinda ega mumvura??. We lost a brother but u here blaiming him kuti akapindirei mumvura yet they were on a race yekuenda the other side nekudzoka.. u bunch of cowards

    • The guy is said to have entered into the water with somebody who managed to swim across.I think it was a swimming competition but the one who drowned realized late tht he couldn’t make it through so he decided to swim back thts when the unexpected happened.

  • Themba Ndlovu Please don’t be so heartless like you will never encounter a tragedy like this ,this is totally Pathetic you can’t take a Video while your fellow is dying ,that means you are a Dog not human being ,the way they think its like they are Animals.If you think South Africa is Separated from Zimbabwe you just Dream at your day shift ,you can’t call a Zimbabwean the Foreigner in South Africa that is Lack of knowledge ,as you are Ndlovu ,Why don’t you ask yourself Why they are Ndlovu clan in Zimbabwe ,And Guys don’t forget early South Africa can go down to that Level of Zimbabwe Economical becouse Zuma continue to Destroy it .

  • “Apa handina short wena”, the most insane and selfish statement I’ve ever heard. This is what defines our society, laughing at someone’s misfortunes, slow to sense danger, slow to react, hoping that things will sort themselves out hence stand aloof and enjoy watching. No compassion, no sincerity, animals are better than humans. Politicians know Zimbabweans are like this that’s why and how they hold on to power, they strike on one and scatter the rest, there is no unity of purpose. Each man for himself. Lacoste hoped dozens will sacrifice their jobs and risk their lives for his cause but none really cares. Doomed and hopeless people.

    • Nxaa akadii kubvisa the trousers opinda akadaro..vamwe vanhu are so heartless

    • You took those words out of my brains, couldnt be more accurate

  • That’s y I dont have friends

  • very sad when I did my bronze medallion life saving they said never attempt try to rescue a drowning person if you don’t know how to because you may end up being the victim you

  • So sad but what’s suprising this guy who drowned never screamed for help or just to alert his friends that he’s tired maybe they could have taken action

    • they saw it at first kuti munhu aneta, and anenge aifamba neumwe wake.

    • Fortune Zihura do you think dai this guy akadaidzira kuti help paakaona kuti he can’t make it to the end his friends were going to keep videorising

    • Taura hako frends always plays pranks sometyms. May his soul rest in eternal peace

    • Kana uchinyura haudeedzeri unomwa mvura its unfortunate vamwe vakazviona kuti aneta vamwe vachiti majokes kuzoti handina short mmm that statement inorwadza

    • But vaitoona kuti akunyura nyatsoteera pavarikuti “boys munhu akutonyura ka u”,vamwe varikuti huya watosvika shamwari”can u imagine umwe arikuti tora vdeo..aah ndarwadziwa sei munhu atofa sure nekuda kwema4ns edu akati kuuya aya

    • kkkk iwewo wakafanana nevaitora video waida kuti aite scream hazvaimboita mvura ichipinda mumuromo plus hantie vanhu vaitoona kuti munhu arikunyura.replay the video

    • It’s really difficult(if not impossible) to shout when drowning 🤷🏿‍♂️

    • You can shout but with difficulties, only to alarm your situation. The reason why it was like drama to him and friends is this element of being drunk, vese pfungwa dzange dzave nerutara, so sad!

    • Screaming whilst you swimming, infact drowning? Use your brains to think please

    • Zvatoitika zvinorwadza. Ngatichidzidzai from here to save more lies.

  • so sad

  • This is so heart breaking veduweee..

  • Rescuing a drowning person is dangerous, you may end up being a victim

  • Fact; they all dont knw how to swim.
    They culd have ran for help ASAP.
    Another fact: when God’s time has come and if its your day you depart ,only it happens in many ways some very heart breaking like this 1. MHSRIP

  • To me their actions fell short of being humans. How can you intertain yourselves at the expense of fellow country man. Have we lost our consience and moral values as humans by laughing off at someone dying so painfully by drowning under their watch. It is so sad that the family was robbed a breadwinner,brother,husband a friend. The one who allowed the man to swim should face the music.

  • and it has become synonymous with zimbos especially in sa to pose for the cameras in the waters and fancy places, I wonder if its a fashion or something, rip anyway!

  • I used to enjoy swimming in Zimbabwe ,but now I can’t do it even 3m is too difficult for me. So Pliz guys don’t take chances rather stay away from this . Rest in peace bra ,this is so sad.

  • I think Zimbabweans we are now getting carried away by this photo/video craze .We are now just taking unnecessary photo and videos even at very dangerous situations….accident scenes with badly injured or dying people..people fighting and stabbing each other and just imagine other people even take photos and videos of men raping women without even lifting a finger to help but just for distributing and sharing such sickening videos .I urge the decent people out there to rova/tshaya any person who is not a qualified journalist who comes to take pics and videos at such tragic situations.Varovei/batshayeni stereki.

  • I am very disappointed wth these guys taking vedios like really .mandigumbura fani

  • ….Ko nyama anga adya here????

  • Sad indeed,mhdsriep

  • one shon down ..so sad

  • one shon down ..so sad

  • Zimbabweans in Pietermaritzburg are only united at funerals, not when it matters most, zvinobetsereyi,

  • how can someone hv the guts of taking a video of someone dying worse still circulating it i believe those imbeciles are happy

  • Please don’t blame anyone we all know u should not swim wen u are drunk this is a dam not a swimming pool 🏊 we should take care of our lives most guys are rude and they have I don’t care attitude those guys they couldn’t swim only 1guy could swim mamwe manyemwe anourayisa why was he swim in the first place me I don’t go near water becoz I don’t know how to swim and I am always telling my colleagues please wen ever we go near water don’t push me in water I can’t swim and I am 120kgs u can not even rescue me wen I am drowning

  • The world is under the hands of the serpent why people keep on entertaining themselves shooting videos whilst someone is need of help Zimbabweans sometimes l don’t see your high level of maturity and education

  • I once helped someone drowning but i almost died because he will pull you down so that he can brethe its very tricky.you cant swim and rescue at once

    • when ever you want to rescue a drowning person always approach them from behind to avoid being drowned or t”hrow a rope fr them and pull while you are outside

  • Boys are ignorant the way they behave ka nenharo dzacho izvo zvivindi kuswimmer mu dam some dams anoyera it seems something pulled him down he disappeared

    • From what I see i think thats a muddy dam, once you go down its hard to get back up because its very sleeprry

    • All of a sudden it becomes a gender issue 🤦

    • Doro nemvura i spark usaenda padyo nemvura wakaguta nedoro

    • Doro nemvura i spark usaenda padyo nemvura wakaguta nedoro

    • Tafadzwa Irvine Mlambo yes munenharo dzinobhowa that leads to death 💀

  • Problem with muddy dams once someone is drowning its very hard to rescue them without using tree trunks or any object to locate them. I dont really understand how those guys managed to get entertained by someone who visibly failing to swim

  • Ibraheem Saleh Abdulrahman

  • Bunch of idiots and cowards.

  • Shame on them ….. May his soul rest on peace

  • Its not a matter of being able to swim,one should be trained and have rescuing skills.Alternatively they have quickly sought assistance near by.Video capturing does not make these guys heroes any way .RIP broe

  • The problem being over excitement and want to follow what others are doing. Be yourself and watch from the terrace the things you do not know. Period.

  • It boggles the mind seeing how some people always try to defend the indefensible. Zvakanzi ” handina short” not handigone ku swimmer. Meaning, if he a short on he would have gone in!

  • Rip Calisto Mlambo we miss yu

  • An empty but closed 2l cold drink container could have saved this guy. With 2l air pocket you can cross a see.

  • shame, how dis happened

  • This is very disappointing, vanhu kusiya mumwe achinyura makatarisa chokwadi? Saka chamakagona chii zvino? That’s mere stupidity to say the least …

  • People of nowadays.

  • Mxxxxxxxm stupid bobojanes

  • Mxxxxxxxm stupid bobojanes

  • They did a very very good ldea.vaona kuti they cant save their friend vakati better kutora video as evidence yekuti he drowned not kut vakamuuraya.dai pasina video iyi dai tikutaura zvimwe ipapa kuti vakamuuraya

    • Ko kana vakamusandudzira unoziva sei cz video inongorakidza muface uyu achiedza kuswimmer bt kupinda kwake hatina kurakidzwa

  • But surely how cld he choose to swim in a dam? Thats reckless and silly. i guess he tried to impress some girls at tht party. May his soul rest in peace and loved ones be emotionally healed

  • But the dude was near… And panga pasinganyudze panhu apa pafeya jst tht anga aneta chete… All they could do was jump in vari3 or 4 and helped out… But hey…. FAKE FRIENDS…watch your own till he die and laughing. God is watching I wonder how they are feeling now

  • zorora murugare wangu

  • why should you keep showing such a sad scene?

  • ndanzwa umwe achiti tora video eishh mazimbo asi chii nhai tanyadzisa zvinorwdza so ndiBaba vatosiya vana ,mukadzi Amai .umwe achiti handina short.sies mhani.regai titongwe hatina brain

  • Conny Nyazika

  • I once had a chance to have lectures about rescuing drowning people, its not advisable to try and act whilst the person is still trying to fight, all you can is to be closer so that when he or she starts to be helpless thrn you act swiftly because if you touch him whilst with some power, you are likely to all die in the waters! Another thing is for this incident, our brothers were all a bit intoxicated which made it funny for their behaviour and reaction towards the issue, lastly when the time has come, and you try to hinder, you are most likely to be swept away, sorry for the sad and untimely death!

  • His friends are just watching him drown and they think it’s funny 🙄😬😡

  • Imagine taking a video wen a brother/frend is dying then u keep that video to show everyone how foolish and heartless u are.. some pple dnt even know how friendship means.. they were a lot of guys on the scene and should have worked together to save a soul.. MAY HIS SOUL REST IN PEACE

  • What I learnt from this post is let’s aĺl have rescue services numbers in our mobile phones or note book. Swiming for pleasure is different from a rescue mission. Some people have confessed that they almost drowned rescuing someone. In South Africa I think help could have been at hand if one of them had the number for water rescue services. If he had been rescued not breathing amedza mvura, do you know what you ought to do? Time for a notebook. Lessons learnt from this tragedy. May his family be comforted and may his soul rest in peace.

  • Drinking braaing and swimming?

  • koh akapinzwa here mumvura macho or akazvipindira nokuda ugamba , imi makuto shaudhana , chitobvisai chema wainda uyu .

  • yu are drunk and see yur friend drawing , what do you do.taking photos is total wrong bt if yu ar drunk also I can nt see th help yu can gve

  • That’s what happens if you dice with water. The results could be fatal.

  • It’s a shame thy should hve call for help early seriously not laughing about zvave vachiita pakazouya munhu ave kutonomutsvaka latr vatoona kuti havachamuone shuwa 😢😢

  • Surely not? this is so hard to believe

  • Zvakaoma

  • Friends just fold hands and take videos….yoo something wrong

  • Shaka

    If it was here in America these monkeys would be charged with murder , what has the world come to friends this is shocking

  • it should be made a crime to film someone dying instead of helping them.

  • Tooo bad hw can these idiots film a frend who i drowning,heartless usless brainless pple
