Over 300 vehicles have been stranded at Msisi Village in Singida District after flood waters from a downpour washed away a bridge on the Singida-Mwanza highway on New Year Day.

The floods also caused the death of a Chinese national -- whose name could not be obtained immediately -- in a separate incident in Singida Region.

Yesterday, The Citizen witnessed long lines of vehicles on both sides of the point from which the bridge was washed away by the floods resulting from four hours of pounding rain on Tuesday.
