MASHISHIMALE-Two children aged 3 and 7 allegedly accidentally slipped and fell into a water-filled pit toilet at Mashishimale Tshube village, on Monday, February 13 at about 18:00.

The two children were allegedly playing outside next to a pit toilet that is still under constriction when the incident happened.
