It is most likely that they knew, from their medical experience, that the poison would not induce instant pain at least to allow them to fly to the rally while their victim would still be feeling alright.
They also knew that he would most likely eat something from the VIP tent; thus, creating confusion as to when he would have been poisoned.
It remains subject of speculation if the Vice President will make a police report against the two ministers.
However, it maybe a waste of time as several ministers who have been criminally charged for various offences remain scot-free as long as they belong to the correct basket in ZANU PF succession politics.
Higher Education Minister Jonathan Moyo who of late has been criminally charged by the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission allegedly for embezzling ZIMDEF funds remains free from prosecution after his arrest was blocked.
The powerful spin doctor was cleared of any wrong doing even before the courts could be given a chance to hear his case.
Saviour Kasukuwere who had nine provinces demonstrate against him for imposing his relatives in ruling party structures was absolved of any wrong doing by the politburo; leaving his accusers shell-shocked.
There is selective application of the law in Zimbabwe that allows those with strong political connections to go away with crime without dreaming of ever getting arrested.
With a G40 faction calling the shots in the ruling party and government, state institutions have become paralyzed due to factionalism and tribalism that have become the order of the day in ZANU PF.
Making a police report in this case therefore is tantamount to giving the police a chance to fabricate and cook up evidence that exculpates the accused ministers from the offence.”
