Human Rights lawyer Alex Magaisa says:
“I’ve just had a conversation with Nelson Chamisa, leader of Zimbabwe’s opposition.
“He’s calm albeit under serious pressure.
“I don’t say this lightly but it was a heinous attempt on his life.
“The regime has gone rogue. It can’t manage him politically so it’s gone dirty.”

He claims they were following the MDC A leader everywhere for the rest of the day.
