A decomposed body of an unknown man has been discovered in the Tugela River in Mandeni, northern KZN, South Africa.

A police source told Daily Sun that a group of men who were fishing in the river on Wednesday notified them about the body they saw floating in the water near the Ehlanzeni area.

It is believed that heavy rains in KZN since last week might have claimed the life of the 40-year-old man.

The source said, "It was not clear where and when he had drowned but we assume that it might have happened a few days ago when the northern part of the province experienced heavy rain."

Captain Nqobile Gwala, a KZN police spokeswoman, confirmed the incident.



"Cops were called to the scene where the body of an unknown man was seen.

"Upon arrival they noticed that the body had no arms and the right leg was also missing.

"An inquest docket was opened at Sundumbili cop shop for investigation."

She urged families missing people of the same age who have disappeared in the past few days to come forward so that they can check if the body that was found belonged to any of them.

Families with missing relatives can contact Sundumbili Police Station on 032 454 7830/32/33 to make arrangements to identify the body.
