Zimbabwe- Two suspects arrested by the police over Mnangagwa rally blast

Two suspects have been arrested by the Zimbabwean police over a grenade blast that killed two people and injured 47 others at a campaign rally for President Emmerson Mnangagwa last month.

Emmerson Mnangagwa said, he suspects who were dissidents from his own party were behind what he called an assassination attempt in the southeastern city of Bulawayo.

According to reports, Police had picked up two suspects and are looking for others, Commissioner-General Godwin Matanga said, according to the state-owned Herald newspaper and other publications.

“We continue to appeal for more information which may enable us to bring to book whoever had a hand in this nefarious act,” Matanga reportedly told officers in Bulawayo.

The privately-owned NewsDay newspaper said the suspects had since been released.

The police force was not immediately available for comment.

Mnangagwa told the BBC in June that he believed the attack was carried out by the G40 group, a faction in the ruling ZANU-PF party which wanted Mugabe to be succeeded by his wife, Grace.

He did not accuse Grace Mugabe of any involvement in the attack. Shocking News : Dead woman found alive inside mortuary in SA
