The secretary for Infomation while speaking to Newsday dismissed terror attack claims by the country’s leading opposition party, the MDC. The MDC through their deputy national spokesperson said Zanu PF is planning terror attacks to stop people from revolting against the government.
Responding to the claims, Mangwana said the MDC is delusional and called the MDC attention seekers. Said Mangwana:
Firstly, government does not plot any acts of terror against anyone. Our role is to protect those who operate legally within our borders. The MDC Alliance is an entity that has a legal right to operate in Zimbabwe without breaking the law. So they will be protected by the State.
But some of their utterances and claims, like this particular one, reflect delusions of persecution and an exaggerated sense of self-importance. After Mr Chamisa’s forgettable speech to a paltry crowd, one can understand these attention-hogging efforts to draw some kind of traction from what proved to be a damp squib of an event
