Tanzania’s Foreign Minister Paramagamba Kabudi says that a journalist who went missing in 2017 may have died.

He said that the state is dealing with all those who have unfortunately died and disappeared in Rufiji, adding that it was very painful for someone who was doing his job to pass on.

The Committee to Protect Journalists which has been campaigning for the government to launch a credible investigation into his case, says Gwanda was investigating cases of mysterious killings in his community in the months before his disappearance.

Gwanda’s wife, Anna Pinoni was one of the last people to see him before he vanished. She says the last time she saw him was when he left their farm in a white Land Cruiser with four men she did not recognise, the Committee to Protect Journalists adds.

The Committee to Protect Journalists says multiple people believe that those men are security personnel. �f��2}6I3�
