Police fire shots as thieves break into Mnangagwa’s private home

Incident falls into the increasing pattern of targeted attacks at Mnangagwas

By Staff Reporter

Thieves broke into President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s private home in Harare’s upmarket Hellensville neighbourhood on Saturday night, with gunshots fired by police manning the property.

No one was arrested in an incident that follows a recent spate of mystery intrusions that have thrice targeted the deputy minister of finance and son to the President, David Kudakwashe Mnangagwa and lately, Tourism and Hospitality deputy minister Tongai Mnangagwa, nephew to the president.


According to ZimLive, at least three male individuals were seen fleeing from the property on Wheeleon Road, a two-storey mansion that is still under construction.

The break-in was said to have happened shortly after midnight.

Police recovered an armoured cable and a copper pipe dropped in the yard by fleeing suspects.

The mansion is being built by Chinese company, Zim Nantong Construction.

Completion of the property is yet to take place even after more than five years of construction.

The imposing house is situated on 25 000 square meters of prime urban land and has eight cluster houses around it at different stages of construction.

The incident adds to a string of ongoing mystery attacks targeting the President and some of his immediate family members.

Police on Tuesday confirmed they were investigating an alleged break-in at minister Tongai Mnangagwa’s offices at the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) building at the intersection of Samora Machel and Julius Nyerere avenue in Harare central.

There have been no arrests made yet in all the incidents.
