first_imgTanzanian journalist missing after murder reports EU rescue drill meant to prepare rescue teams Mohammed Dewji – Courtesy PulseLiveTanzania will not seek foreign assistance in its investigation over the abduction of billionaire Mohammed Dewji, deputy Home Affairs Minister Hamad Masauni has said, local media reports.He had been responding to calls by opposition MP Godbless Lema who said the government was not doing enough to find the tycoon.“If you look carefully at the statements made by the government and the police in particular… You’ll see an utter lack of seriousness on the government’s response on the issue at hand,” privately-owned Daily Nation newspaper quoted him as saying.Mr Dewji, reportedly Africa’s youngest billionaire, was taken by masked gunmen in the Tanzanian city of Dar es Salaam on Thursday last week.The abduction took place outside a swanky gym in the affluent neighbourhood of Oysterbay.The kidnappers fired shots in the air before driving away with the billionaire, eyewitnesses said.His family has offered a 1bn Tanzania shilling ($440,000; £330,000) reward for information that leads to his rescue.Mr Dewji, locally known as Mo, is credited with turning his family business from a wholesale and retail enterprise into a pan-African conglomerate.His company, MeTL, has interests in textile manufacturing, flour milling, beverages and edible oils in at least six African states.Meanwhile police have released 19 of 26 people who were arrested in connection to the abduction, The Citizen newspaper reports.Relatedcenter_img Plane debris found off Tanzanian coast was from missing MH370 – Malaysia confirmslast_img read more

Leicester eye La Liga defender as replacement for Maguire, Foxes interest…

first_imgWith Harry Maguire now on his way to Old Trafford after Leicester City and Manchester United finally agreed on a fee, the Foxes will be hunting for a replacement. That won’t be easy given the pivotal status Maguire enjoys at the King Power Stadium, but it seems Brendan Rodgers and his team have identified a La Liga centre back as a potential replacement.Marca report today that Leicester have turned their attention to Malaga’s Djené Dakonam for when Maguire leaves.The newspaper offers little more than that, just that the Foxes are looking at the Togolese defender. There is no suggestion of a price, whether Malaga will sell or even if negotiations are underway.This, however, is not the first time that Djene has come up in regards to Leicester. The Foxes were linked with a move last summer and were even said to be willing to pay €35m for him.The interest didn’t end, with them linked again back in March when that €35m fee was suggested once more.There have been no links since that point, but it’s clear that Djene is a player they’re aware of at the club and like, so perhaps once Maguire is entirely done, that interest will firm up.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoCNN with DBS BankWhat Banks Did To Help Corporations Mitigate Future CrisesCNN with DBS BankUndoPerfect-Dating.comThousands of successful men are looking for women in Tung ChungPerfect-Dating.comUndoLoans | Search AdsNeed a loan?
