Biti house bombing dies natural death


Police investigations into the alleged bombing of MDC-T secretary general and Finance minister Tendai Biti’s home have not yielded anything, police chief spokesperson, Wayne Bvudzijena, said Monday.

“Investigations are still on (but) we can’t discuss whatever we have found at the scene in the media,” Bvudzijena told NewsDay.

“So far there is nothing substantive.”

Early this month an explosive device was thrown at Biti’s house just after midnight, but no one was injured. The explosion damaged a small part of the precast wall at the minister’s house in the Grange, Harare.

At the time of the alleged attack, Biti’s house was not guarded as is the norm. Biti was not at home.

Asked why the minister’s house was left vulnerable, the police said they did not have enough manpower to provide round-the-clock protection for some senior government officials such as ministers and judges.

After the incident the MDC-T said it did not take the attack lightly, given that there had been increasing criticism and verbal attacks on Biti.

The party called for a thorough investigation into the incident.
