Four Zambian suspected criminals gunned down at Tuduma, Tanzania

General News Four Zambian suspected criminals gunned down at Tuduma, Tanzania

Four suspected criminals believed to be Zambians have been gunned down at Tuduma in Tanzania by the Tanzanian police during an exchange of heavy gun fire.

Both Tanzanian police and Muchinga Deputy Commissioner of Police Peter Bubenshi have confirmed the incident in an interview with ZANIS at Tuduma today.

Mr. Bubenshi said the four suspected criminals were gunned down at about 11:00 hours yesterday when they staged a day-light robbery at beer depot located at Songea about 6 km inside Tuduma town from the Zambian border town of Nakonde.

Mr. Bubenshi said Tanzanian police have since recovered 400,000 cash Tanzanian Shillings equivalent to K1.6 million, an AK 47 Rifle and a Semi Automatic Machine Gun (SMG).

One of the deceased suspects was also found with a ticket for a Zambian bus operating between Lusaka and Nakonde which showed that he arrived in Nakonde in the morning yesterday and allegedly took part in staging the robbery.

The bodies of the four suspects are lying at Tuduma mortuary awaiting further investigations.

Meanwhile, a team of Zambia Police officers from Chinsali has arrived at Tuduma Tanzania for further investigations.

Mr. Bubenshi said the team will be in Tuduma working with the Tanzanian police to ensure that the case is fully investigated and the source of fire arms traced.


  1. Our own government has worse criminals than these guys. Only difference is they dont hold Semi Automatic Machine Guns to our heads.

  2. Obviously found in a wrong maize field……May their souls rest in…..not sure since the Good word says, ” Thou shall not steal”

  3. Meanwhile Tanzanian cattle hustlers go as far as Mwenzo to steal cattle and the Zambian police plus the paramilitary do nothing.

  4. Don’t waste time to bring the bodies to Zambia. Just cremate them. Am sure it was a C5 kind of execution where they caught, slaughtered and a story of exchange of fire created!

  5. Is it Tuduma or Tunduma?

    Anyway, brother Rock, please stop confusing me. How can K400,000 be equivalent to K1,500?

  6. they are enjoying in hell as at now. repent whilst you have life in your nostrils dont follow women of all hues and colour, they will derail you, be content with what you have and never compare yourself to any one…….. awe ine fye ku tunduma wamona nomba

  7. I know nothing about the zedian money, being away close to 20 years and the only way I’m coming back home is in a casket.
