Victoria Falls Airport bomb scare rattles ED

President ED Mnangagwa


President Emmerson Mnangagwa was forced to fly back to Harare after Victoria Falls International Airport shut down following a bomb scare.

Sources revealed to the media that the airport received a call claiming there was a bomb on site, just minutes before President Emmerson Mnangagwa was due to land.

Mnangagwa has safely landed back in Harare.

ED’s motorcade was seen a couple of minutes ago speeding from RG International Airport to the State House.

He is due to attend closing ceremony of renewable energy conference.

Apparently, there is an Air Zimbabwe plane on the tarmac at Victoria Falls International Airport and passengers cannot disembark as authorities investigate reports of a bomb.

A scheduled Ethiopian Airlines plane is an hour from landing, but will likely divert to Zambia as emergency continues.

Meanwhile, a Kenyan Airways flight from Nairobi has been forced to hold for several minutes before diverting to Livingstone.

Presidency Spokesman George Charamba confirmed that Mnangagwa cut short his flight after authorities were alerted to a credible bomb firearm threat targeting Zimbabwe Airports.

“Nation is urged to remain calm,” Charamba added.
