HARARE – The Zimbabwe government has been mum about the recent assassination attempt on vice president Joyce Mujuru. According to informed sources, a private, believed to be with President Guard of the ZNA, Joseph Mutima, allegedly opened fire with his service issue AK47 rifle on her motorcade two weeks ago. The shots bounced off the armour-plated presidential limousine in which Mujuru was travelling. Her bodyguards returned fire and wounded Mutima in the leg before capturing him. At the time of going to press it was believed Mutima was being held at the Braeside police camp where the CIO internal surveillance unit is based. “I bet they are still beating the hell out of him right now,” said a military source. Mutima is believed to come from Dorowa in Manicaland. The last such attack in Zimbabwe was before Independence when Mugabe’s motorcade was attacked during the run-up to the 1980 elections.
