Tanzanian police said on Monday they have launched a manhunt for suspects who poisoned Philip Mangula, the vice-chairman of the country’s ruling party Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM).

“Police are investigating reasons behind the poisoning of the ruling party’s vice-chairman,” Lazaro Mambosasa, the Dar es Salaam Special Zone Police Commander, told a news conference in the commercial capital.

He said police will take punitive measures to suspects who will be implicated in the coordination and poisoning of the party leader.

“Police will leave no stone unturned in the search for people behind the poisoning of the party’s top official be it within the country or overseas,” said Mambosasa.

He said on Feb. 28 Mangula collapsed during a meeting of the ruling party’s Central Committee chaired by President John Magufuli at the party’s sub-head office in Dar es Salaam.

Mambosasa said CCM reported the poisoning of Mangula who is being treated at the Muhimbili National Hospital, the country’s leading referral health facility, on March 2. Enditem
