Mwanza Police in Mwanza are holding a Tanzania Roads Agency (TanRoads) engineer allegedly for accidentally gunning down his friend.

Mwanza regional police commander Jamal Rwambow said Felix Ngaila alias Mulima's pistol went off accidentally killing his disabled friend, Franchis Mkondo alias Mangala, 43, at about 2.30pm at Mwashibula Malya village in Kwimba district on Sunday.

The duo left the city using a Toyota double-cabin vehicle to Mangala's home village to inspect farms, the TanRoads engineer intended to buy.

On arrival at the village, the duo picked Mangala's relative, Paul Nhibula, 47, to help them look for suitable farms for purchase.
