Mwanza. The government is in the
process of cracking down seven
networks of suspected criminals who
have

conducted raids, robberies and
murder, mostly targeting mobile money
service providers.
The Home Affairs minister, Mr Charles
Kitwanga informed the public today as
he cited robbery incidents, which saw
some mobile money service providers
attacked, injured or killed in the city
recently.
“We’ve already managed to break down
two of the networks, as we zero in on
the remaining five others,” the minister
said.
The city has for two months witnessed
seven cases of armed robbers invading,
looting and killing entrepreneurs, mostly
the mobile money service providers,
right at their shops at Nyasaka, Kiseke,
Shede, Nyegezi, Nyakato and Bugarika,
among other suburbs.
“The government won’t tolerate seeing
innocent people attacked, robbed of
their valuables or killed by robbers.
We’ll hunt, arrest and arraign them all”,
he stressed.
