CPJ calls on Tanzania authorities to release staff Angela Quintal and Muthoki Mumo

Muthoki

According to the Kenya Union of Journalists Executive Director Juma Kwayera who spoke to Kahawa Tungu, the communication devices for the two have been tampered with by the Tanzanian police.

The Department of worldwide relations and cooperation says South African journalist Angela Quintal and a colleague returned to their hotel in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, in the early hours of this morning.

The two staffers were detained in Dar es Salaam on Wednesday evening.

Giving details on their arrest‚ Gallens said: "After approximately five hours‚ Quintal and Mumo were then returned to their Dar es Salaam hotel at around 3am - but without their passports".

Quintal sent a message Wednesday from her verified Twitter account saying she and her colleague were "being taken for interrogation by Tanzanian authorities and we don't know why?"

Mabaya said their release came "after a lot of calls" but neither of the women had been given back their passport.

Quintal is the Africa Program coordinator for the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), and Mumo is the organisation's Sub-Saharan Africa representative.

"It is unclear whether the Tanzanian authorities have taken Quintal's phone".

Among the issues is why Quintal and Mumo were detained, and why the authorities still held their passports.

The reporters were then escorted from the hotel and have been taken to an unknown location.

The two were on a reporting mission missing in the country.
