Robert Decourcey Stringer (26), a volunteer aid worker with the Irish charity Camara, was killed during an apparent mugging and robbery in Zanzibar last Friday. Robert's body was discovered on a beach at 0800 AM, 7 August, 2009. He had suffered head injuries and some of his personal possessions were missing.

Robert was on holiday in Zanzibar after completing a five week volunteer mission as a team co-ordinator with Camara's computer training team in Tanzania.

A local man has since been
arrested in connection with the incident.

Camara provides refurbished computers and computer literacy training to schools and colleges in Africa.
