Speaking during a rally to drum up support for the ruling party at Maneta Primary School in Buhera Central constituency on Monday, Minister of Lands, Agriculture and Rural Resettlement Perrance Shiri said the explosion that rocked White City Stadium in Bulawayo on Saturday was an act of Satanism.
He said Zanu-PF is not blaming anyone but is letting the police conduct investigations. Said Shiri:
What happened in Bulawayo on Saturday was regrettable. That was an act of Satanism. Let us not accuse anyone as masterminds of Saturday’s incident. In fact, as a party, we are not pointing fingers at anyone. We will let the police do their job. We can only urge members of the public to help law enforcement agents in bringing the culprits to book. We know they will misfire when partaking in discussions, be it in churches or beerhalls. That is where we expect you as members of the public to report any suspicious utterances or acts. Let us be vigilant.
