Dodoma. Three family members have been found dead in their home with their bodies indicating that that they were brutally killed at Mayamaya Village in Zamahelo Ward, Mayamaya executive officer Grace Mwikola confirmed.

Mwikola made the statement today, December 14, 2018, saying the killings were discovered earlier today when some of the deceased’s children returned home.

He mentioned the deceased as David Isaiah and his wife Hilda Mazengo with their young child whose name has not yet been known.

"It's true, today we received information that children of the deceased came back home in the morning and found the door open, when they got in, they saw the lifeless bodies on the floor," said Ms Mwikola.

She further said that the source of the murder was not yet known and that the deceased's bodies were taken by the police to Dodoma Regional Hospital for postmortem.

However, she said the deceased was a good man who did not quarrel with fellow villagers. They suspected that the killers would have wanted money because yesterday (December 13) he sold his bags of sunflowers.
