Service for student in burnt-out car riddle
A MEMORIAL service will be held tomorrow for a Swansea student whose body is believed to have been found dead in a burned-out car.
Moses Chabu's vehicle was found on the Cwm Gwaun Mountain Road, close to the village of Newport, Pembrokeshire, earlier this month.
The family of the 26-year-old, who is studying civil engineering at Trinity St David University Swansea, have been unable to contact him since.
A Facebook group has now been set up announcing the service will be held at St Joseph's Cathedral in Greenhill at 11am.
The mother of Moses, Astridah Mwami, told a Zambia-based TV channel she had to release her son's medical records to help identify the body found in the car.
"The police came to our house and they said they had found our son's car and they said the car was burnt out and there was a body inside," she told Muvi TV.
"They didn't know it was our son but it was likely that it was him because that was his car. They confirmed his registration number.
"They said the body was so badly burned so we couldn't identify him properly so they asked me to sign the consent form so they could have access to his medical records and dental records so they could maybe confirm it was Moses.
"The incident happened in West Wales. We don't know how he got there.
"He hasn't been answering his phone and he hasn't come back home — he was driving a VW Golf, that was the car they found, which was burnt."
A spokeswoman from Dyfed Powys Police was unable to confirm whether they had been able to identify the remains found in the car as Mr Chabu.
If you have any information over the death call police on 101.
