Ex-Simiyu Regional Commissioner under probe

By Lake Zone Watch Writer

Police in Mwanza have arrested former Simiyu Regional Commissioner Yahya Nawanda on charges of sexual depravity in an incident which allegedly occurred at Rocky City Mall in Mwanza city early this month.

Mwanza Regional Police Commander, DCP Wilbroad Mutafungwa told journalists yesterday that Nawanda is under investigations involving other state agencies for committing the alleged offence to a university girl student (name withheld) on June 2, 2024, at night.

Police in collaboration with other government bodies are scrutinizing scientific evidence before the arrested ex-regional boss appears in court.

Nawanda was relieved of his duties early this week by President Samia Suluhu Hassan following leadership changes in which former Momba District Commissioner Kenan Laban Kihongosi was named the new Simiyu Regional Commissioner.
