Confirming the incident, Acting Chief Mbiuni Location Chris Mwanza said that the man had been beaten during drinking in one of the local joints in Mbiuni.

When he was taken to Mbiuni Health Centre hospital he was referred to Mwala level 4 where he passed on the way.

In the morning his employer saw he was injured,” Mwanza said.
“He took him to Mbiuni Health Centre for treatment but he was referred to Mwala Hospital, while being brought to the hospital, upon arrival at Mbiuni Stage he collapsed and died on the spot,” he added.
