John Zulu one of the two Bulawayo men who were arrested and later released without charge over the explosion which occured at White City Stadium has said that he is living in fear. Zulu who works as a tout and Douglas Musekiwa were released due to lack of evidence tying them to the explosion which killed two people and injured at least 40 people. Speaking to Daily News’s Southern News, Zulu said,
We were released last Monday (July 2). The police said we should go home as they are still conducting further investigations and might summon us back if they find anything on us. We were picked up by police in plain clothes a week after the bombing incident. They found me here at the shops where I operate as a tout.
…On the day, we had nothing much to do so went to … the rally and we were seated in the front but as for that bomb thing, we saw nothing. They (police) showed us a camera where we were captured at the rally and it was us in the pictures. So, they tracked us using those pictures until they found me at the shops because I am well-known here so it was easy for them to get me.
This thing has destroyed my life, no one wants to employ me now as they see me as a criminal. All the people I used to work with are now distancing themselves from me…The worst thing is that we are living in fear because the police told us not to talk about this matter and we now feel that wherever we are, we are being stalked.
