    According to Kalonzo's personal assistant identified as Matiki, unknown people in two vehicles drove by the home, opened fire and hurled the device into the compound.

    “They made a u-turn meters ahead and stopped opposite the gate, hurled the grenade into the compound before shooting several times,” he stated.

    According to Matiki, the former Vice President was at home at the time adding that the gunmen also shot at the gate but no one was injured in the 2 am incident.

    Matiki further divulged that the attackers drove off soon after the incident and termed it an assassination attempt.

    He said they collected the spent cartridges and the grenade safety pin as evidence to the attack.

    Yesterday, Kalonzo announced that his security detail had been withdrawn ahead of the planned swearing in ceremony.

    He revealed that the five GSU officers assigned to him had been ordered to pack and go.

    “Every security detail was taken away. But this is a very important struggle and we are still consulting," he stated.
