JUST IN : ED Rally Explosive Grenade ‘Made In Russia’
The White City grenade which claimed two lives and left 47 critically injured during an explosion at a Zanu PF rally in Bulawayo is believed to have manufactured in Russia.
The development follows assistance from at least four Russian investigators who joined the inter-agency probe early this month in a team that includes the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Military Intelligence (MI) and the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO).
Details are that the Russians, using sophisticated equipment were able to map the flight of the grenade thrown from the crowd, at a distance of about 30 meters from the VIP tent. Furthermore, it’s original flight would have taken it to within inches of Mnangagwa, who was leaving the rally, but for a small detour after it hit a tent rope and careered slightly away from his position.
It is further highlighted that the fragments collected from the scene positively identified the explosive device as an offensive fragmentation grenade made in the former Soviet Union. The type of grenade used is in active use by Zimbabwe’s military, according to the sources.
Also, early reports immediately after the bomb explosion had suggested that military investigators suspected that the grenade may have originated from the ZRP’s armoury – but it was quickly established that the police disposed of their grenade stocks in the late 1980s.
