Miss Tanzanian 2016 contestant, Queen Nazil, from Ilala area
in Dar es Salaam, was attacked by a gang of robbers last Saturday night after being dropped at home by a friend.
“SHE HAD JUST ARRIVED HOME AFTER A NIGHT OUT WITH FRIENDS; AND WHEN SHE WAS WAITING FOR HER SISTER TO OPEN THE GATE, TWO MEN ON A MOTORBIKE AMBUSHED HER, DEMANDING SHE GIVES THEM HER HANDBAG,” SAID A FRIEND.
“SINCE THE HANDBAG HAD HER PHONE, IPHONE 6 MODEL, TSH200, 000 (KSH9, 400) AND OTHER VALUABLES, QUEEN TRIED TO RESIST, AND THAT IS WHEN ONE MEMBER OF THE GANG CUT HER IN THE HEAD WITH A PANGA. SHE COLLAPSED, AND WAS LEFT BLEEDING PROFUSELY,”
The Tumaini University Third Year Bachelor of Law student was rushed to a Dar es Salaam hospital for urgent care. Her friend said she is responding well to treatment.
Police in Dar es Salaam are currently looking for the robbers.
