Minister of State for National Security Owen Ncube has blamed the opposition MDC Alliance, its allies in non-governmental organisations and civic society sectors for a day of countrywide anti-government protests. In a statement, Ncube said violence had led to a loss of life and destruction of property. He did not specify how many people had died.
