Arusha — THE MANGLED body of a man identified as Hussein Pacha was discovered here in the early morning of Sunday, in Ilkiurei Ward near Mianzini.
The late Pacha, who is reported to have previously been working at the Arusha offices for the Morogoro-based, Hood Bus Services Limited, is said to have been crushed to death by huge rocks thrown on him by some unknown people.
The police in Arusha have confirmed the incident saying other than the fact that the victim was heard fighting with some people shortly before he was killed, there are no further reports on the issue. Eye witnesses say the deceased's body was found beneath a pile of rocks.
The Area Chairman, Mr Hussein Abdul Leja, admitted that the victim used to reside in Ilkiurei and his death has shocked the entire neighbourhood. Mr Leja is the one who called the police when the body was discovered buried under rocks; police officers collected the body at about 11am and people wondered why it took them that long.
The entire section, comprising Triple A, Moravian junction and Ilkiurei itself, is regarded as high-crime area and when the late Pacha was heard in what seemed like a heated argument, the night before, people in the area were afraid to get out lest they also get attacked.
