President Emmerson Mnangagwa was warned of a plot to assassinate him by a Twitter user Monomutapa. The tweet surfaced after an explosion went off at Bulawayo’s White City Stadium where Mnangwagwa was holding a political rally.
The president and his deputy, retired General Constantino Chiwenga were not injured in the explosion although several senior government officials including Vice President Kembo Mohadi were injured. Bodyguards and aides to the officials were also injured.
Below is the tweet:
President of Zimbabwe
I was humbled to meet with representatives of disability organisations, and I have appointed a Special Advisor on disability issues to enable us to effectively respond to the concerns of this community. We are committed to ensuring empowerment and equal opportunities for all! pic.twitter.com/osavU7S48V
There is a plot to assassinate you after the election leading to the rise of Chiwenga to the incumbency. I am not threatening the life of the president but actually providing a tip that may help keep him alive. Stay safe. To the men and women who protect him be vigilant
