“Bulawayo Bombing Was Definitely From The State Itself, Zanu-PF Has A History Of Internal Strife”

In an interview with The Standard, academic Ibbo Mandaza said that the Bulawayo explosion which killed two people and injured more than 40 other people was definitely an inside job. Said Mandaza,

That incident shows how fractured the state is. It was definitely from the state itself, it was an internal job and it is not surprising because of the coup itself. People should be concerned about state media reports, George Charamba and Mnangagwa himself to try to find scapegoats before investigations are complete.What happened in Bulawayo should be condemned and thorough investigations should be carried out. Imagine if the whole leadership could have been killed, where that could have left our country.

There should be an honest approach to the investigations as opposed to obstructions and scapegoating. The allegations that the person was found in a Zanu PF t-shirt and police claiming they had no access to the person because he was taken away by the military [are worrying].

…The history of Zanu has been such since 1975 in Lusaka, 1978 in Maputo, in recent years, the expulsion of Joice Mujuru and nine chairs, the chronic intra-party rows and the coup. Sections of the security sector were overrun by the military, the police and intelligence. It is a credible suggestion that it could be internal. That should be the first line of inquiry. The speed with which Mnangagwa talked of external factors and aggrieved persons from G40 raises questions.

We also hear of a rift between Mnangagwa and Chiwenga, although hard to prove and truly the Saturday events have exacerbated the view.Mnangagwa loyalists accuse Chiwenga and vice versa. It is a fact the coup did not resolve Zanu PF intra-party fighting.

  1. it is only one with a mind of a rat who thinks this was an escalation of an internal fight. do the analysis… the two parties accused to have been involved both almost lost their lives. so now i dont know if any sane human being would take their life together with that of his opponent in order to rule. it does not make sense. these are just utterances of individuals who want to use the white city explosion to gain political relevance

  2. i dont understand how a grown up man with grand children still holds on to the notion that operation restore legacy was a coup when right now the president is with fellow legitimate presidents at the AU Summit in Mauritania. Let me make this clear, IF IT WAS A COUP, AU WOULD HAVE RECOGNIZED ED AS A LEGITIMATE PRESIDENT. please revise your politics mdhara mandaza

  3. mandaza stick to business and making money,,, this political analyst you are trying to play is definitely not your calling. its funny how your alleged coup had no casualties, no destruction of property and business continued as usual in its duration. itai business bambo
