Don’t Endanger Mnangagwa’s Life By Blocking Motorcade: Govt

Secretary in the Ministry of Information, Broadcasting and Publicity, Ndavaningi Mangwana urged motorists to respect the Presidential motorcade as failure to do so endangers the life, not only of the President but the lives of outriders and commuters.

Mangwana said this in an interview with NewZimbabwe, and it follows a video circulating on social media showing a presidential guard outrider apparently assaulting a motorist. Said Mangwana:

You will remember that there was an attempt on the President’s life in June last year, so we cannot take his security for granted.

Nobody has been arrested over that issue and we urge citizens to respect the motorcade as is required by law and the Highway Code is very clear on this.

Citizens are encouraged not to obstruct the motorcade, as we all know the President is protected for a reason.

Not doing so would mean endangering other citizens, other citizens and commuters who are going about their business when people try to avoid colliding…

When sirens and blue lights are on, people are supposed to give the motorcade preference to pass through. The outriders are always in danger and it is the responsibility of citizens to park and allow them to pass.

Otherwise, we are endangering the principal (President) and the escorting team.

Asked about the incident involving the assault of the motorist, Mangwana said that he had not seen the video, but said he saw one of an incident which occurred close to Munhumautapa, where Mnangagwa’s offices are located. He added:

It shows there is an altercation. That vehicle obstructed the motorcade, that is the report I got. There is another one of a Mercedes Benz that tried to side-swipe the motorcade and the assailant’s car lost a mirror.
