Officers and detectives attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) arrested three suspects, including Ms Makungu who are now assisting in the investigations.

Police say she was injured on the left side of her body as she suffered several bruises while being beaten up by the angry mob.

According to the police, the man managed to escape during the incident, and he is safe.
