Kinondoni Regional Police Commander Charles Kenyela said Kanumba was taken to the hospital unconscious from his city home in Sinza Suburb.

"Initial reports indicate that he fell in his bedroom while with his 18-year-old girlfriend Elizabeth Michael," said Mr Kenyela. The girl, also an actor commonly referred to as 'Lulu', has been cohabiting with Kanumba for some time now.

Mr Kenyela confirmed they were holding Lulu for questioning. She was still locked up at the Oysterbay Police Station on Saturday night.

The police chief said investigations were still in the initial stages, and as such, it was too early to draw conclusions on the cause of the death.

He, however, promised to issue a detailed statement, adding that a postmortem was also underway at the hospital's mortuary. According to Mr Kenyela, Lulu told them that Kanumba fell and hit his head on the concrete wall before passing out.

"She said the deceased just slumped to the ground and hit the concrete once they were in the bedroom," he said in a telephone interview with The Citizen, our sister paper.

Lulu told the police that Kanumba had picked a quarrel with her after arriving home at about 1a.m. over a telephone call she had received.

"Lulu said when he got aggressive she tried to run away but Kanumba caught up with her outside the gate and took her back to the bedroom. She says he collapsed as soon as he locked the door and hit the wall," Mr Kenyela said.

At the scene
The police took a glass and bottle of whisky from the scene which the deceased was believed to have been drinking. Other witnesses claimed they also saw them dust the wall and take a sword from the bedroom.

News of Kanumba's death was greeted with much shock since the self-made actor had attracted tremendous following and liking for his quick success in the film industry, spanning almost decade.

Thousands of fans rushed to the hospital as soon as they got wind of the incident. The crowds welled by the second outside his gate, forcing the police to intervene to cordon the highway for smooth traffic flow.
