Masumba’s son drowns in pool

STEVEN Masumba has demanded an explanation on the death of his son who drowned in Richard Taima’s swimming pool on Friday.

Masumba’s son, Milangwe, who was about one year four months old, drowned in a swimming pool at Taima’s residence in Woodlands on Friday.

Taima’s niece, Stacy, is the mother of Masumba’s son.

An emotional Masumba, who had difficulties explaining the death of his son, in an interview yesterday demanded an explanation from Stacy and her family on what had transpired regarding the incident.

He said he was informed about his son’s death by Taima while he was in Solwezi.

Masumba said the time the incident occurred, Stacy was at Taima’s place and that he did not know exactly what transpired.

He said he expected the mother or anyone present to monitor the child’s movements, especially that there was a swimming pool.
