Daniel John, a local leader of the main opposition party Chadema in Hananasif ward, Kinondoni, Dar es Salaam, was reported to have been kidnapped along with a party supporter, Reginald Mallya, on Monday.
The politician was murdered while the supporter was left for dead on a Dar beach.
US calls for a transparent investigation to hold all perpetrators of violence accountable.
