MASVINGO – A legislator in Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s MDC claims he has been sent two bullets at his workplace.
Zaka West MP, Festus Dumbu, said that the bullets were from an AK-47 assault rifle.
The legislator, who is also a sports development administrator at Triangle Limited in the Lowveld, said he now feared for his life.
“We discovered the bullets in the morning while I was parking my vehicle at my parking lot,” he said.
“I strongly suspect that this is a political message and threat from Zanu PF.
“As I speak, I am afraid of losing my life, I am actually living in fear because the bullets to me are a message that I can be shot any time.”
Dumbu said he made a report at Triangle Police Station.
Police in Masvingo declined to comment.
Dumbu said he has taken the matter up.
“I have also approached Jomic over the issue while I wait for the completion of police investigations,” he said.
“But I am very scared and afraid that any minute can be my last judging by the history of our security sector when dealing with their party rivals.” – Godfrey Mtimba
