Nelson Chamisa's spin nurse Nkululeko Sibanda tells News24 that the attack on the MDC headquarters has been reported to the police but "we don't expect any arrests. The same thing happened on September 11, 1999, we are yet to see an investigation".

"Yes, the building [MDC headquarters] was set alight by over 20 assailants who arrived in about 10 vehicles. They quickly deactivated our security personnel as some of them were armed.

"They then applied some substance after gaining entry by breaking into the building. They then set the building  ablaze.

"The fire was later  contained, owing to  the  fact  that  our ground floor does not have too  much furniture.

"Zanu-PF is abusing State monopoly of violence, bringing guns to burns our HQ. President Chamisa is saddened by these actions - he thinks they are unfortunate and regrettable.

"However, he remains resolute and unfazed. The president (Chamisa) says the MDC will continue growing, from strength to strength in a bid to serve our country and the great people of Zimbabwe. He notes that the grievances that Zimbabwe has against the Mnangagwa government are legitimate and genuine.

"He believes that on a day that the government oversaw the murder of unarmed citizens, it is shocking that they would want to continue their murder spree by burning party headquarters."
