A 80-year-old man has died under unclear circumstances at a lodge in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, after a night out with 33-year-old woman.
David Mluli was found dead on Saturday, January 16, at room number 22 in Mbezi Garden, where he had gone to spend a good time with a woman identified as Neema Kibaya (33) who has since been arrested in connection to his demise.
The sad news was confirmed by the Kinondoni regional police commander Ramadhan Kingai as reported by The Citizen.
“The police arrived at the area and found Mr Mluli’s body along with a woman who identified herself as Neema Kibaya. Kibaya told the police of the love relationship she had with the deceased," the police boss said after his officers received a phone call by the facility's manager at 3pm on the fateful day.
The men in uniform took the deceased's body to Mwananyamala Hospital for a postmortem to determine the cause of his untimely departure from the world.
No suspected foul play
According to preliminary investigations, there was no suspected foul play and Mluli could have died a natural death.
“There were no direct physical signs that could have been noted as doubtful with exception of his under wears getting wet before he passed away,” Kingai disclosed.
Detectives said they found KSh 1,750, his national identification card and a Tecno mobile phone in his room.
Cases of men dying in lodges have been on the increase in the recent past.
In June 2020, a 42-year-old man was found dead at a lodging in Kakamega after a night of love making.
According to the officer commanding Kakamega central police division David Kabena, the deceased identified as Munala had checked into the facility in the company of a woman.
It was the said woman, Anyango, a resident of Siaya county who alerted the lodging management of the incident on the following morning.
