Zanu-PF aspiring MP for Makokoba Constituency Retired Colonel Tshinga Dube has said that it is debatable that the projectile which caused the Bulawayo explosion was grenade as has been alleged. Dube called for a thorough forensic investigation to establish the specific weapon used. Speaking to Sunday News, Dube said,
It has been said a grenade was used to carry out that attack but it’s debatable because as far as I know there is an offensive and non-offensive grenade and they both explode and sprout out sharp nails. The smoke after the explosion isn’t synonymous with grenades but it was more of the one which comes after a landmine explosion. Thus there is need for thorough investigations to be carried out to determine the weapon which was used.
The explosion killed two people and injured well over 40 people. The police released the two suspects who were alleged to have committed the act without charges.
