Said the MDC Alliance in a tweet:
“President @nelsonchamisa’s convoy car (Toyota Fortuner) has been impounded with threats of arrest against those in the vehicle.

The development comes after President Chamisa held his rural areas engagement tours where Zanu Pf thugs attempted to assassinate him.
Said the MDC Alliance:
“The people’s President, Adv @nelsonchamisa met community leaders, stakeholders & women’s groups in Nyanga North. He shared the movement’s agenda which seeks to champion the cause of the people and secure 6 million votes so we form the next Govt & win Zim… “
Watch the people’s president thanking the electorate for their support:
However, Manicaland provincial Zanu PF youths have denied attacking MDC Alliance President Nelson Chamisa in Mutare Tuesday afternoon adding that the alleged assassination attempt was a ploy stage-managed in order to taint Emmerson Mnangagwa’s image.
Addressing journalists at a press conference at Zanu PF Manicaland offices, Wednesday the District Coordinating Committee (DCC) secretary for youth affairs, Danmore Mambondiyani said Chamisa’s assassination attempt was stage-managed by own party stalwarts in a bid to raise funds for their leader’s armoured vehicle.
Chamisa survived an assassination attempt in Mutare as he travelled from Chipinge district where he is meeting traditional leaders and the electorate.
“One can see the claims of attacks and gunshots by the MDC Alliance are merely a continuation of a failed Black Operations strategy aimed at smearing the integrity of the government and the people of Zimbabwe.
“The President (Emmerson Mnangagwa) and his government are seized with expanding the power grid, dam capacities, improving roads infrastructure across the country, as well as creating an environment that is conducive for business and job creation.”
“Chamisa wants to tarnish the name of our nation and our hardworking youths in all districts despite that he is enjoying roads recently surfaced by President Mnangagwa. Probably he may be seeking support for fundraising a vehicle which he is longing for.
“He is trying to hobnob with sponsors so that he will continue enjoying the newly surfaced roads across the country.
Mambondiyani is one of the suspects identified to be behind the plot to assassinate Chamisa Tuesday.
