    TWO people have died in separate incidents including one who committed suicide at Kimara Temboni Area in Kinondoni District on Friday.

    The Kinondoni Regional Police Commander (RPC), Charles Kenyela, said in Dar es Salaam on Saturday, the deceased in the first incident, who was identified as Isack Mkandawile (48), did not leave any message behind on the motive which led him to take his own life.

    “Isack used the wire to hang himself to death in his room. His body was found hanging at 1:30 pm in the night,” the RPC explained.

    RPC Kenyela said the body of the deceased was taken to Mwananyamala Hospital’s mortuary in Kinondoni District for preservation.

    He added that Police were investigating the cause of the death. In another incident, one man has died while another suffered serious injuries after an electric post fell on them at Mabibo Area in Kinondoni District on the same day.

    RPC Kenyela named the deceased as Emanuel Samson (35) who was a worker with the Power Joan Company which dealt with installation of electric posts. He said Emanuel died on the way to Muhimbili National Hospital (MNH).

    “Emanuel and his driver both suffered serious injuries after the post fell on them while they were offloading one of the posts from the lorry. They were rushed to Hospital, but Emanuel died on the way,” he said.

    The RPC said the injured person who was identified as Chimboka Mwasege (38) was the company’s driver. He got medical treatment at the hospital and was discharged the same day.

    The RPC said the body of the deceased had been preserved in the mortuary at the same hospital. The police were investigating the matter, he said.

    Meanwhile, a fire demolished a store and one room on a two-floor building on Lugalo Street in Ilala District on Friday evening.

    The Ilala Regional Police Commander (RPC), Faustine Shilogile, said the cause of the fire was believed to have been leakage of petrol from a generator which was on since 6:00 in the morning.

    RPC Shilogile further said all properties in the room and a store owned by one Luft Islam (48) were burnt to ashes. Mr Shilogile said Police were investigating the incident to establish the cause of the fire.
