DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania -                                        A Tanzanian investigative journalist, Erick Kabendera, was reportedly kidnapped Monday from his home on the outskirts of Dar es salaam, the country’s business capital.

A leading Tanzanian newspaper Mwananchi reports that Kabendera who writes for local and international newspapers was abducted Monday evening by people who are said to be police officers. Police have denied being involved.

According to the newspaper, the journalist’s wife Loy Kabendera, said that the journalist was “picked up by six people who forcibly stormed into the house and left with a Toyota Alphard” car.

She said the people identified themselves as police but refused to produce their badges. They also left with cellphones belonging to Kabendera and his wife.

The paper also recalled that in November 2017 a Tanzanian journalist Azory Gwanda disappeared mysteriously while investigating a series of killings of local government officials and police officers by unidentified assailants near Kibiti in Pwani region. He has not been since.
