Tendai Biti’s Harare home attacked
The former finance minister and senior MDC member had a similar attack on his home in 2011.
HARARE - A petrol bomb has been thrown at senior Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) member Tendai Biti's home in Zimbabwe.
Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai says the attack on the former finance minister's home could be the work of the party's enemies trying to fuel internal tensions and cause a split.
The attack took place at around 1am on Tuesday.
No injuries were reported.
The incident closely resembles an earlier attempt on Biti's home three years ago.
The attack was foiled by security at his northern Harare home.
MDC spokesperson Douglas Mwonzora says the party is shocked by the latest developments.
Biti, who is the secretary general of the MDC, has been linked to a handful of senior officials calling for Tsvangirai to step down.
The call has been fiercely rejected by some youths in the party.
It's not clear who is behind the attack, but Mwonzora says it bears the signature of the ruling Zanu-PF.
