SOME 43 foreign nationals believed to be of Somali and Ethiopian origin have been found dead in a truck that they were reportedly traveling in from Arusha to Mbeya through Dodoma.
Initial reports have indicated that they succumbed to death due to suffocation inside the cargo truck in Chitego village in Kongwa District, roughly two kilometers from Kiteto District. A total of 113 people were said to be traveling in the truck. A Kongwa district official, who spoke on condition of anonymity as he was not the official spokesperson, confirmed the deaths.
The source said it was the driver of the vehicle who first discovered that the passengers had died after he heard noises and decided to open the truck’s window.
