Police probe into murder of Mwanza clergyman
Mwanza Police in Mwanza Region have launched an investigation against a bishop (name withheld), in connection with the brutal murder of pastor Claude Clevance Ishengoma of Highway Holiness Church at Igoma suburb in the lake side city last Saturday. The bishop who runs a church for born-again Christians is believed to have hired hit men to finish off pastor Ishengoma after they were embroiled in a feud. "We are investigating the bishop along with other suspects following tips-offs from various sources," Mwanza regional police commander Zelothe Stephen said yesterday. He said: "Some people believe that a clergyman in the church had contracted the assailants while others say the two men of the cloth were indulged in a quarrel over their lover they shared. We are investigating the matter." The commander said police are interrogating seven other suspects over the murder of the pastor. Two of the suspects are reported to have been found in possession of a laptop and two wireless microphones belonging to the murdered pastor. The two were arrested at an Internet caf頡t the city centre while testing the laptop. On November 23 at 8.30p.m, unidentified assailants stormed into pastor Ishengoma's residence and hacked him to death.
