Uhuru Kenyatta

@UKenyatta

As a long standing friend of Zimbabwe, Kenya 🇰🇪 sends its message of goodwill to President @edmnangagwa and the people of the Republic of Zimbabwe 🇿🇼. Political competition should not fracture Zimbabweans but should be a measure to deepen their democratic credentials.

Writing on Twitter, Maimane called on South Africa and SADC to conduct investigations to determine the cause of the explosion. Said Maimane:

Mmusi Maimane

@MmusiMaimane

We condemn the bombing that took place in Zimbabwe. More than anything the country needs free and fair elections without violence. SA and Sadec must conduct an investigation urgently to determine all causes. Violence is undemocratic.

The United States of America and the United Kingdom issued separate statements condemning all forms of political violence after an explosion occured at White City Stadium in Bulawayo. In a statement, MDC Alliance and presidential candidate Nelson Chamisa condemned all forms of violence in politics after the incident.
