AllankwizeraA three- member formed by the Media Council of Tanzania is in Kigoma probing the murder of Kwizera Radio journalist, Issa Ngumba.

Ngumba’s  body was  found in Kajuluheta  mountain forest in  Muhanga village Kakonko district three-days after he went missing.

A gun with five rounds and two cell phones were found  beside his  body.

 

The MCT led by  the Council’s  Ethics and  Arbitration Manager,  Allan Lawa,  is tasked to establish  whether the death is connected  in any way  with the  deceased  work as journalist and  will also look  into the safety and working environment of  journalists in Kigoma including working in areas with refugees.

Other members of the team are Joyce Bazira, a lecturer  at the School of Journalism and Mass Communication of the University of Dar es Salaam and  Deo Nsokolo, the chairperson of Kigoma Press Club.

The team is expected to recommend  how the working environment of journalists  particularly their safety will be improved.

This is the second   time the Council is probing the  killing of journalists.  In September last year it set up a three-member team to probe the extra judicial killing by police of journalist Daudi Mwangosi.
