The officers are reported to have been crossing a river between Yatia and Chemoe when the lorry was swept away by floodwater. 
 
Five officers managed to swim through. 
 
"My officers were at work when the car got stuck, then from nowhere water swept them but one body has been recovered," Ocholla said.
