Mystery surrounds the death of Chief Siyabonga Mkhwanazi, 27, the son of late chief Minus Mkhwanazi of Mpukunyoni in Mtubatuba, northern Zululand.

Mkhwanazi's body was found floating in the Umsunduzi River yesterday.

According to his family, Mkhwanazi went missing on Saturday while he was driving a "policeman friend" to Empangeni.

Family spokesman, Qhina Mkhwanazi said Siyabonga was with 40-year-old Mfanawentaba Mgenge when they disappeared.

"On Sunday morning the police found his vehicle's numberplate on the bridge and assumed the car had plunged into the river," Mkhwanazi said.

"They later found the car but not the bodies."

He said the search continued on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

"Yesterday morning, the bodies were found floating in the river," Mkhwanazi said.

"The bodies were still intact though the river is full of crocodiles and hippos."

He said the policeman who had been with the prince on Saturday visited the scene on Sunday, but was later found dead, allegedly knocked down by a car.

Captain Jabulani Mdletshe confirmed that the bodies were discovered yesterday.

He said a postmortem would be conducted to establish cause of deaths.
