Zimbabwe president Emmerson Mnangagwa has spoken in a written statement via his social media after an explosion at his rally on Saturday in the city of Bulawayo saying ‘”the strongest response to violence is peace.”
Mr Mnangagwa said an object “exploded a few inches away from me – but it is not my time”.
This afternoon, as we were leaving a wonderful rally in Bulawayo, there was an explosion on the stage. Several people were affected by the blast, and I have already been to visit them in the hospital. While we await further information, my thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this senseless act of violence said Mnangagwa
Mnangagwa added The campaign so far has been conducted in a free and peaceful environment, and we will not allow this cowardly act to get in our way as we move towards elections.
Let us continue to be united and address our differences peacefully. The strongest response to violence is peace. The strongest response to hate is love.
