Confirming the development, the district police Officer in Charge Deputy Commissioner Edward Chingayipe, who earlier denied the issue, said the body of the deceased is currently kept at the hospital.

According to Chingayipe no arrest has been made on the matter.

“Indeed we have found the dead body of a man at Rukuru River with no head and private parts chopped,” Chingayipe confirmed.

An eye witness Luka Mwakanema who was grazing cattle within the river banks earlier told Nyasa Times that they found the dead body around 4 PM when he and his colleagues were doing their usual job.

This is a third time incident that a man has been found dead in the district only within the month of June and July 2015.
