Zanu PF President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his new political commissar, major general Engelbert Rugeje, bussed thugs to attack the MDC HQ, with guns.

The attackers were not XIMEX Mall dealers as was reported by Newsday, but Zanu PF thugs bused from the Fourth Street Harare Province Zanu PF office and from Budiriro.

This was the conclusion of a meeting between MDC and XIMEX Mall dealers in the presence of Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) to understand the facts surrounding the attack, to find a lasting solution and to identify the culprits who attacked the MDC headquarters.

An MDC spokesman said the meeting resolved to set up a committees from both sides with the aim of identifying leading Zanu PF thugs who masterminded and led the attack.

The committeeman's will also be tasked with identifying the suspected criminals operating within the vicinity of the MDC HQ mainly along Mandela, Angwa, Kwame, Nyerere, and First and Silundika Streets.

Some who mobilised at the backyard of the TV Sales shop in carrying out their barbaric act are already known, but it is not clear whether the authorities will do anything about this as they are wont to protect ZANU PF.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has been going on and on like a broken record about how we are going to have a peaceful, free and fair election, but so far he has not done one thing to discourage this violence.

Maybe this is another opportunity for President Mnangagwa to show the world that he is serious about his pronouncements, otherwise neither Zimbabwean citizens nor the world has any reason to believe him or to believe in him.

We also hope that Newsday will make a correction of their story which stated that the violence was caused by MDC activists trying to steal cellphones.
