TANZANIA: MURDER/DAILY NEWS/4/5/18 SABANews 1
The DAILY NEWS says the unknown assailants attacked MWADUI Ward Executive Officer BENEDICTO CHAPEWA early this week as he was drinking with others at his own bar.
It says the armed gang gunned down the late Mr CHAPEWA before mutilating his body with machetes.
The paper quotes RUKWA Regional Police Commander GEORGE KYANDO as saying the horrific and tragic incident has brought fear to residents in the ward, located along Lake RUKWA in SUMBAWANGA District.
He says the RUKWA Regional Crime Officer, only named as Mr N KITINKWI, and his team are working round the clock to search for the killers.
Commander KYANDO says the suspects vanished into the darkness after the crime, but without harming or robbing other patrons nor stealing money from the bar.
He says they could not establish if the suspects were either gangsters or robbers, because they simply shot Mr CHAPEWA and sliced him into pieces before the horrified patrons.
The TANZANIAN Police official says the murder has left both the law-enforcement agents and residents confused./Sabanews/cam
