G40 Fingered In White City Stadium Explosion
The Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) spokesperson Douglas Mahiya has revealed that his organisation suspected that the White City Stadium bombing incident was an inside job engineered by members of the G40 faction who remained in government and top party structures following the ouster of former President Robert Mugabe on November 17 last year.
Mahiya singled out the G40 faction as topping the list of suspects calling on the law enforcement agents to hunt the perpetrators of the heinous attack and bring them to justice.
Said Mahiya: “War veterans demand that the culprits be brought to book. The evil political machinations of G40 and enemies of the Zimbabwean revolution cannot be ruled out as suspects. We also don’t rule out the evil acts as an inside job, time will tell.”
He said while the association condemned the attack, they wanted police to release information on the attacks.
“The ZNLWVA condemns in the strongest terms the barbaric, cowardly acts of terrorism in the Bulawayo bombing. War veterans will always remember this and continue to demand more information and that our national security will go to the bottom of the matter,” he said.
Zanu Pf Youth wing also confirmed that it was highly likely that the G40 faction was behind the attack adding that the grouping did not like President Emmerson Mnangagwa because he was a straightforward person.
Said Pupurai Togarepi, Zanu Pf Secretary for Youth Affairs:
“So as war veterans are saying and as any other Zimbabwean will think, maybe it could be those elements who used to enjoy things that they can’t enjoy now because we have a straight forward President. So they may be tempted to kill him to create instability. I can’t give you the list of my suspects, it’s so long, but I am hurt.”
The youth league leader however did not disclose any names but indicated that it could have been an inside job which involved people around Mnangagwa.
He called on his charges to provide a human shield to the party’s top leadership adding that it was the duty of the youths to defend the revolution.
“The terrain features have changed so has our approach going forward. We are not going to tolerate behaviour that is suspicious, from today onwards. As the youth league, we stand to defend the revolution, to defend our leadership … from now onwards we offer ourselves as a human shield, to our President, to our leadership to the people of Zimbabwe.
We know they are targeting our President, they want to maim, kill him, but that will mean disaster for our future as the youth. So from today onwards, all members of the youth league are called upon to defend the President, and we will defend him with our lives in all circumstances, wherever he is we shall be, and when he falls and if he is to be killed by anybody, that person should kill all of us,” he said.
Meanwhile, the 43rd Plenary Assembly Session of the SADC Parliamentary Forum (SADC PF) got underway in Luanda with Angolan President Joao Lourenco denouncing suspected bomb attacks at White City Stadium.
Officially opening the SADC PF Plenary Session on Monday, Lourenco said the attack was “cowardly, criminal and undemocratic”.
Lourenco said the attacks in Bulawayo and Addis Ababa Ethiopia — where Prime Minister Abiy was addressing supporters in Meskel Square when an explosion ripped through the crowd killing two people, and leaving 156 injured — were meant to undermine efforts that are ongoing toward holding democratic elections, particularly in Zimbabwe.
The Chinese government also issued a statement condemning the attack.
“The Chinese government strongly condemns the political violence perpetuated at the White City Stadium in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe and wishes to express its sincere condolences to the relatives of the deceased,” said the Chinese government in a statement.
“China sincerely hopes that the forthcoming harmonised elections in Zimbabwe will be held in a smooth and peaceful manner and Zimbabwe will continuously maintain stability and achieve continued development and prosperity.”
