A. I have been working the phone over the past 90 minutes. This is what I can share— Trevor Ncube (@TrevorNcube) June 23, 2018
1. Intelligence/police ruling out MDC as a source of Bulawayo explosion. MDC clearly don’t have capacity.
2. Militant activists in Bulawayo have been questioned and ruled out
Today's explosion at White City Stadium in Byo is a tragic reminder that the use of tanks, bombs, grenades & guns by whosoever against anyone to settle a political contest is barbaric. Nov 15, 2017 set a dangerous paradigm for politics in Zimbabwe. Violence begets violence. Sad! pic.twitter.com/PugLVxTnYc— Prof Jonathan Moyo (@ProfJNMoyo) June 23, 2018
Io sono romano-salentina, ma oggi mi sento un pochino milanese anche io twitter.com/gramantovani1/…
non c’è un’Italia solo razzista, intollerante, misera, pronta a scagliarsi sui più poveri e sui diseredati. C’è Milano dove il Sindaco Beppe Sala e l’arcivescovo Mario Delpini organizzano il Pranzo Multietnico più Grande del Mondo, a Parco Sempione.Grazie, sono di Milano anch’io.— graziellamantovani (@gramantovani1) June 23, 2018
