ZIMBABWE : President Emmerson Mnangagwa has reportedly increased his security aides after he escaped with his life when a bomb exploded at a political rally in an apparent assassination bid in June.
Emmerson Mnangagwa was flanked by at least 40 security aides during the recent commemorations of the Defence Forces Day in Harare.
Mnangagwa first came to power through a military backed intervention that culminated in former president Robert Mugabe’s ousting in November.
“Mnangagwa reportedly now has at least five closed circuit television cameras mounted around every area where he will be officiating that are monitored from a central point,” said the report.
In June, an explosion rocked the White City Stadium where Mnangagwa was addressing thousands of his supporters.
Mnangagwa managed to escape unhurt, while over 40 people, including the president’s two deputies were injured.
One of the vice presidents, Kembo Mohadi and Zanu-PF Chairperson Oppah Muchinguri Kashiri were airlifted to South Africa for medical treatment following the bombing incident.
Mnangagwa recently said that Mohadi was recovering but he was still experiencing great pain, reported the state-owned Herald newspaper.
He was also quoted as saying that the suspected bombers were now known and would be dealt with after the election period was concluded.
