Concerns over President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s security have resurfaced following a shooting incident at State House on Tuesday.
A ZANU PF official who spoke to the Daily News on Sunday said there are genuine worries over the lapses in security, especially in light of last year’s White City bombing incident. Said the official:
We are all very concerned about these now seemingly regular lapses of security around the president, which should not happen at all. Indeed, we had all hoped that after the Bulawayo incident all security lapses would be plugged, but here we are again.
The legitimate question to ask is that is this the last such worrying incident? This is all difficult to explain, particularly as the culprits for the brazen White City Stadium attack have not been arrested, as was pointed out by Comrade Tshinga Dube this week.
A soldier who was on guard duty at State House fired his rifle into the air on Tuesday with reports claiming that he was disgruntled over the economic challenges in the country.
The soldier, who allegedly has a history of mental problems, emptied his magazine and was about to reload when he was apprehended by his colleagues.
