Zanu-PF bombed its offices in Gweru: MDC-T

Zanu-PF bombed its offices in Gweru: MDC-T
Published: 04 January 2012 (2838 Views)
MDC-T yesterday claimed Zanu PF was aware of people behind the alleged bombing of its Gweru offices and was now looking for scapegoats, the NewsDay reported today.

According to NewsDay, MDC-T's deputy spokesperson Thabitha Khumalo said "Zanu-PF knows that the party that controls government institutions that keep guns and bombs is their party."

"If it was us we will all be behind bars by now," Khumalo said.

"They bombed themselves and are now looking for scapegoats.

"They should go to those institutions that they control and ask who was behind the bombing.
"We do not believe in violence, there is no benefit in our party bombing Zanu PF.

"This is an indirect way of terrorising people ahead of elections," she said.

The three-storey building where the offices are located in Gweru's Central Business District also houses the Central Intelligence Organisation, police's Criminal Investigations Department and several private organisations. Meanwhile, police yesterday said they were yet to find any leads into the alleged bombing.

Midlands' provincial police spokesperson Inspector Patrick Chademana said there were no developments in the case so far.

"There are no new leads at the moment," Chademana said.

Zanu PF spokesperson Rugare Gumbo also said they were waiting for briefings from the police on the outcome of the investigations.

"There are no new developments. We do not have any suspects except obviously opposition parties. We are waiting for the police update," he said.

The bombing occurred amid calls for peace by President Robert Mugabe (Zanu PF), Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai (MDC-T) and Welshman Ncube of MDC.

Last month, the three leaders held an anti- violence indaba in Harare amid cheers, pomp and fanfare.

However, those sceptical of the move described it as a charade to hoodwink Zimbabweans into believing leaders of the dysfunctional inclusive government had kissed and made up.

The Ncube-led MDC yesterday said it abhorred any acts of violence and urged the police to get to the bottom of the matter.

Party national spokesperson Nhlanhla Dube yesterday said: "We hope the police will work swiftly and account for the perpetrators."
