“I have returned home safely,” he said in a tweet from his company METL Group’s account.

The businessman thanked Tanzania’s police “and everyone around the world for their prayers”.

It is not clear how Mr Dewji, 43, was freed or whether a ransom was paid.

Mr Dewji was abducted by gunmen at the Colosseum Hotel early on 11 October, as he arrived for a morning workout.

His family had offered a 1bn Tanzania shilling ($440,000; £330,000) reward for information leading to his rescue.

Tanzania’s environment minister January Makamba, a close friend of the industrialist, tweeted on Saturday morning that he had spoken to Mr Dewji and his father.

He said the kidnappers had abandoned Mr Dewji at a field near the Gymkhana club in Dar es Salam, Tanzania’s commercial capital.

The billionaire is reported to be in good health, but with bruises on his hands and legs due to handcuffing.
