Mugabe party office firebombed

Attackers have thrown petrol bombs at a ruling party office in a suburb of the Zimbabwean capital, Harare. One person died and seven people were hurt, several seriously, say police. Assistant Commissioner Wayne Bvudzijena said about 50 young men drove into Harare’s western Kuwadzana township on Monday night, smashing property and assaulting pedestrians before throwing petrol bombs at the offices. Police say the former MP committed suicide in custody “It’s a political attack. We suspect that it is related to the by-election to be held in the suburb,” Mr Bvudzijena said. A parliamentary by-election is expected to take place soon, following the death in police custody last year of an opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) MP, Learnmore Jongwe. Full Story
