Police in Mbeya region are holding Chinese national Xiao Yong (33) on suspicion of assaulting and beating two drivers for allegedly using the money they were given to send to Kyela district on gaming machines.
He said the army initially received information from social media showing that Tanzanian citizens were being beaten and then they started tracking and finding out what happened in Meta Street, Mabatini Ward in the city here.
"We started monitoring and identifying those Tanzanians who are employees of Bonanza Company," he said.
Matei said police were not happy with the act and warned foreign nationals to refrain from taking the law into their own hands by beating their employees instead of handing them over to the state.
He said the suspect was being interrogated at the main police station and would be brought to court once the investigation into the case was completed.
