Tanzanian TV journalist Daudi Mwangosi died yesterday after being struck by a gas canister as police dispersed a crowd at a rally staged by an opposition political party.

The Channel Ten reporter was killed while covering the opening of a branch office of the Chadema cha Demokrasia na Maendeleo (Party for Democracy and Progress) in Nyololo.

Though the government-owned Daily News gave the story little coverage, there were, evidently, lengthy and detailed eyewitness reports from journalists published in Swahili.

Mwangosi is the second person to die in conflicts between Tanzania’s military-style police force and the opposition party in the last two week. On 27 August, a man was killed in Morogoro as police dispersed Chadema supporters.

Police have ordered Chadema not to conduct political activities until the conclusion of a national population and housing census.

A national newspaper, MwanaHalisi, was suspended indefinitely by the government in early July after it reported the abduction and beating of Dr Stephen Ulimboka, the leading spokesman for the nation’s doctors who have been engaged in an on/off strike over pay and conditions for six months.
