    "I am deeply concerned by the killing of Daudi Mwangosi and call on the authorities to investigate his death and bring those responsible to justice," the Director-General said. "It is essential for democracy and rule of law that journalists be allowed to carry out their duties and exercise their right to free speech safely."

    Daudi Mwangosi, 40, was a reporter for Channel Ten TV. He was killed while a demonstration he was covering in Nyololo Village in the central region of Iringa was being dispersed.
