BRIGADIER ARMSTRONG GUNDA ASSASSINATED!!

A top-ranking Zimbabwean Army officer died yesterday when a train smashed into his car on a crossing in the town of Marondera, capital of Mashonaland East. Sources immediately hinted that he had been assassinated by military intelligence because of his alleged involvement with the recent attempted coup.
He was Brigadier Armstrong Gunda, Commander of One Brigade, stationed in Bulawayo, and reckoned to be number four in the army hierarchy. At one time he was head of the Presidential Guard, reporting personally to Mugabe.
A member of his family told me yesterday: "He had hinted to me that he and other senior officers had been questioned about the coup. He was apparently suspected of talking to the leaders of the MD
He was anxious and afraid, and said he thought he was being followed."
A highly placed source in the Zimbabwe National Army said he was sure it was an assassination. "He was killed because of what he was doing in Mashonaland East," the source told me. "He should have been with his unit in Bulawayo."
It remains a mystery why Gunda, who was found in the wreck of his top-of-the-range Toyota IMV, was in Mashonaland. The area is the home of the rich and powerful retired General Solomon Mujuru, husband of vice-president Joyce Mujuru, and now a known opponent of Robert Mugabe.
Mujuru himself has come under suspicion of being associated with the attempted coup. Some sources say he is technically under house arrest, but is so powerful he ignores all restrictions, and security forces can only follow him and report his movements.
If the rumours about Gunda's death are correct it is evidence that President Mugabe's regime is growing increasingly unstable, as he continues to lose support amongst the very people he could previously trust.
Assassination by road accident is not unknown in this part of the world. In 2001 Defence Minister Moven Mahachi died after being implicated in another coup plot, when his Landrover was in a mysterious collision in the town of Nyanga. First Post
