A man was shot and seriously injured on Saturday during a robbery at a hardware store in Mwanza.

The 23-year-old man, who was identified only as Abdulaziz, is the son of the proprietor of Karibu Hardware Stores. He was taken to Weil Bugando Medical Centre for treatment.

Eyewitnesses said two gangsters armed with pistols first struck at the neighbouring Rahisi Hardware Stores, where they robbed a customer of Sh2 million and a mobile phone.

They then proceeded to Karibu Hardware Stores where Abdulaziz surrendered Sh20,000 that was in a drawer. The gangsters shot Abdulaziz in the stomach before escaping in a saloon car that was waiting inside.
