Tanzanian authorities have freed two Committee to Protect Journalists staff, Ms Muthoki Mumo and Angela Quintal, who they had detained for in an unknown location.
South Africa’s Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) said the two journalists are back in their hotel.
“South Africa’s High Commissioner Mr Thami Mseleku is meeting with them to discuss last night’s events. He will then engage Tanzanian authorities. DIRCO spokesperson, Mr Ndivhuwo Mabaya, spoke to Ms Quintal this morning,” the SA Foreign ministry said in a tweet on Thursday.
