VIDEO: Mum sure son is dead after man's charred body is found in burnt-out car
THE mother of a missing Swansea student says she is certain he is dead.
Moses Chabu’s burned out car was discovered in a remote part of Pembrokeshire earlier this month with the charred remains of a man inside.
His mum Astridah Mwami says she is convinced it was her son in the charred VW Golf found on the Cwm Gwaun Mountain Road, close to the village of Newport.
She had not been able to get in touch with the 26-year-old Zambian who is studying civil engineering at Trinity St David University Swansea — know until recently as Swansea Met.
But she says she is at a loss as to how he came to be there.
BELOW: Listen to an interview with Astridah Mwami:
Police are investigating the unexplained death of the man found in the car.
Ms Mwami, in an interview with Zambia-based channel Muvi TV, said she had been asked to sign documentation to release her son’s medical records to help identify the body, which was burned beyond recognition.
She said: "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.
"Then they didn’t know if 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 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 the dental records so that they could maybe confirm that it was Moses."
She added: "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.
"The car is his — he was driving a VW Golf, that was the car they found, which was burnt."
A Dyfed-Powys Police spokeswoman said: "Police and the fire service were called to the incident at 9.21pm on Monday, October 7, which involved VW Golf.
"The body of a male was found in the vehicle and the death is being treated as unexplained.
"The coroner has been informed."
If you have any information over this death call police on 101.
