A 37-year old man was killed by unspecified gangsters at his home at Kavu Village in Geita District, Mwanza City, at the weekend. The murderers, according to Mwanza regional police commander, Mr Simon Siro, made away with the deceased person's private parts, leaving the rest of his body torn into pieces. The deceased person, Mr Sengerema Mulyakendo, was living alone at his house.

Mr Sirro told journalists at his office in the city that a stench wafting from the house enabled neighbours to learn about their colleague's death several days after the murder.

The neighbours resolved to break into the house only to find Mr Mulyankendo's naked remains scattered in pieces on the floor, he said.

The deceased person was, to the astonishment of his neighbours, last seen on June 20, this year, at the village.

They called in police officers at around 2pm last Friday immediately after learning that their neighbour was brutally murdered in his house.Police officers linked the murder with ongoing spate of witchcraft-related killings in the Lake Zone regions as they embarked on an investigation on the incident.
