An accountant with Saint Augustine University of Tanzania (SAUT) is among two suspected armed robbers in police hands allegedly for hijacking a bus and robbing two passengers of Sh24.6 million.

Mwanza regional police commander Jamal Rwambow said last weekend two other robbers escaped on a motorcycle immediately after the carjacking incident that took place at dawn at Kalebezo village in Sengerema District in the region last Thursday.

He said the law enforcers had also impounded a shotgun used in the incident, but the two armed robbers at large had escaped with a machine gun and the stolen money.
