Habari zaidi baadae. From Citizen Daily News Paper! 25/06/2012 Arusha. Scores of suspects have been arrested in Mara Region in connection with the killing of a Dutch tourist and a lodge manager near the Serengeti National Park.The Mara Regional Police Commander, Mr Absalom Mwakyoma, told The Citizen in a telephone interview last night that an operation was underway to net other suspects. "I can't disclose how many have been arrested but we are already interrogating scores of them," he said. Mr Mwakyoma added that he would talk to the media about the issue today. He said the suspects were arrested in villages close to Moivaro Lodge which was raided by armed robbers on the night of June 20, this year.The victims have been identified as Eric Brewelmans, a tourist from the Netherlands and lodge manager Renatus Bernard, Tanzanian citizen. The raid took place at the lodge, located at Ikoma area, a short distance from the famous Serengeti National Park. At the time of the raid the lodge was hosting about 40 tourists who lost personal items and money to the robbers. Accounts from the area said most of the visitors at the time of the attack hailed from the United States, Spain, Denmark and China. The killing has come as a shock to the tourism industry in Arusha with some fearing it could tarnish the hospitality industry, now leading in foreign exchange earnings. Most of the stakeholders have called on the government to strengthen security in the lodges and the famous tourist sites.The attack has also coincided with the onset of the high tourist season. However, some players in the hospitality sector have been quiet and have not commented on the tragedy, apparently to ensure there was not much negative publicity generated by the incident because, they believe, it could further tarnish the image of Tanzania as a major tourism market. This is the first killing of tourists in the most-visited northern circuit in years.Isolated attacks have been reported at Duluti Crater near Arusha, at Mto-wa-Mbu and the Ngorongoro highlands at different times since 2007, but did not end in loss of lives.
