KibandaKadhurikaThe Chairman of the Tanzania Editors Forum (TEF) , Absalom Kibanda , has been severely injured after he was  attacked by unknown assailants  at his home in Dar es Salaam on Tuesday March 5, 2013 night.

Kibanda who is also the Managing Editor of New Habari publishers of Mtanzania, Rai , The African and Dimba, was rushed to Muhimbili national hospital when he was admitted at the Intensive Care Unit.

Speaking on the attack on Kibanda, the Executive Secretary of the Media Council of Tanzania (MCT),Kajubi Mukajanga, expressed shock for the brutality.

He noted with concern that attacks against media practitioners are increasing, since the murder of journalists Daudi Mwangosi last year and  the killing of Issa Ngumba a journalist working with Radio Kwizera in January this year.

Normally when journalists are attacked, the Council investigates to establish whether the attacks are associated with their work as journalists and this case, it shall look if there are indications to that effect, Mukajanga said.

He extended consolations to members of Kibanda’s family and wished him quick recovery.
