aniel John was responsible for the Chadema party in the Hananasif district of the economic capital Dar es Salaam, where a heated local election campaign is under way. "
Daniel John was kidnapped on Monday in the street by men in a car," Freeman Mbowe told AFP, the leader of the opposition in parliament.
John's body was later delivered to a hospital, with machete wounds to the head, said Mbowe, who accused supporters of the ruling Chama Cha Mapinduzi (CCM) party of being behind the attack. "
The party in power wants to get everything by force," said Mbowe.
