A Tanzanian dies at a road-rage shooting in America

Humphrey Magwira (20), was shot multiple times at a junction in Beechnut, Houston on his way to get a hair-cut on October 15, 2021.

On his way, he got into a car crash and the other driver came out and shot him several times leading to his death.

Magwira was a second-year student at University of Houston studying computer engineering and working a part-time internship in Computer science. He moved to the USA with his parents at the age of 11.

“I can’t believe he is gone. He was my friend. It has been hard as a family, as a mom, you know,” said Josephine Kuyangana, Humphrey’s mother, adding that people should stop harming others as everyone has value and “deserve to live.”

Speaking on the sudden death of his son, Exuperius Magwira said, “We thought it was a good idea to come to this country for a better education for my kids.” Kuyangana added, “But now, It’s not.”

The family is currently raising funds to hold the funeral service of their beloved son in their home country in Tanzania.

Ramon Vasquez (19) is the suspected shooter and is currently been charged with murder, and he is to remain in jail on a $500,000 bond.
