Tanzania: Dar Man Commits Bizarre Suicide

TWO people died and two others have been injured in separate incidents which occurred on Wednesday in Dar es Salaam, police have confirmed.

In the first incident a man identified as Philemon Joel (28) was found dead after committing suicide by hanging himself in his living room at Sinza Madukani in Kinondoni Municipality.

The Kinondoni Regional Police Commander (RPC), Mr Camillius Wambura, said in the city that the incident occurred in the afternoon just about 6:00 and the body of the victim was found hanging in the room.

"The man used a piece of khanga to take his own life and it is still unknown why he decided to take such a decision," said Wambura. He added that the body of the deceased has been preserved at Muhimbili National Hospital (MNH) pending the mandatory postmortem and burial arrangements.

In another incident a motorcyclist identified as Mr Cristatus Kazimoto (23) has been killed and two other motorcyclists got injured in a road accident which occurred along Mbande Road at Chamazi in Temeke Municipality.

According to the Temeke RPC, Mr Engerbelt Kiondo, the accident occurred in the morning at 09:40. It involved three separate motorcycles.

According to eyewitnesses, the accident was caused due to the reckless riding of one Musae Munue (23) who was riding a Skymark motorcycle with registration number T 978 CNG and Warioba Mbechi (25) who was riding a Fekon motorcycle with number T 828 CUX.

"These two motorcyclists were travelling in the same direction, from Mbande to Chamazi. They were plying on the road veering from left to right.

They eventually hit a Boxer motorcycle with number T 662 CJB which was being handled by the late Cristatus Kazimoto who was coming from the opposite side," said Wambura.

He said that Kazimoto died on the spot while Mbache and Munue got injured and have been admitted to Temeke hospital for medical treatment. The deceased's body has been preserved at the same hospital.
