THE body found in Gamalakhe, Qinabout area in the Ohlangeni stream on Friday has been identified as that of Godfrey Moketi Ngake, known as “Stone”, who was a car guard at Shelly Centre.

A community member reported seeing Ngake’s body floating in the stream.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Zandra Wiid said at about 1pm on Friday the Port Shepstone SAPS Search and Rescue members were called to assist with the recovery of the body.

The identity of the body was unknown when the inquest docket was opened by Gamalakhe police.

Ngake’s death is under police investigation. His family is taking his body back to the Free State for burial.
