The Kisutu Resident Magistrate’s Court in Dar es Salaam yesterday postponed a murder case facing a prominent businessman in the city, Marijani Abdubakari Msofe, also known as Papaa Msofe, to December 27, this year.

The decision to postpone the case was reached by the court after the prosecution led by State Attorney Mwanaisha Komba informed the court that the investigations had not been completed.

Msofe is accused of having killed a fellow businessman, Onesphory Kituli last year in a feud over a house, which the deceased had bought on mortgage after making a down payment of 30m/-.

When first charged, the accused was not allowed to enter any plea because murder cases are normally handled by the High Court now he has entered a not guilty plea and remains in custody since there is no bail on murder cases.
