Zimbabwe: CCC party denounces assassination plot against its leader

Zimbabwe’s opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) party said on Sunday that its leader Nelson Chamisa escaped an assassination attempt.

It comes after his convoy came under a bomb attack in the town of Chinhoyi, about 115km west of the capital, Harare, the BBC reported.

In a statement posted on Twitter, the CCC said Mr Chamisa’s convoy was attacked with explosives as it approached the venue of a rally.

It said the venue was also petrol-bombed on Saturday by unknown people.

The party blamed ruling Zanu-PF “thugs” for the attacks.

There has been no immediate reaction from the government.
