Popular Tanzanian rapper Ibrahim Musa aka Roma Mkatoliki says he was abducted by four armed men, tortured and then dumped near the ocean in the main city, Dar es Salaam, on Thursday.

Musa, famous for his anti-government songs, was found on Saturday, three days after his disappearance ( see earlier entry).

Speaking at a press conference in Dar es Salaam, he said he did not know who his abductors were.

He also refused to give details of the alleged torture, but showed he had scars on his, back, ribs, hands and on his leg.

The musician said he was abducted with a producer, another artist and a domestic worker from a music studio in Dar es Salaam’s Kinondoni suburb.

They were all tied and dumped by the ocean.

Speaking at the same press conference, the Minister for Information, Art, Culture and Sport, Harrison Mwakyembe, said investigations were continuing and people should  not jump to conclusions on who was behind the abductions.
