Mboma was stationed at Takwirira High School in Chisumbanje.
“Yes I can confirm the discovery of the body of Samson Mboma an Agriculture teacher at Takwirira High school. He has been missing since last week and his body was found by a villager Maka Nduna, of Machona village, when she was fetching some firewood,” he said.
