Reports say the water level at the falls has risen due to the heavy downpours the region is experiencing making it dangerous for tourists who have less swimming skills, but Management of the Boti Falls have failed to provide precautionary measures to draw attention of tourists to the dangers. Efforts to get management of the water fall and the Obawale Police have not been successful.
Meanwhile, the Obawale Police have begun investigations into the incident.
