Shots fired after robbers target President Mnangagwa’s private home

Emmerson Mnangagwa

Gunshots rang out when intruders broke into President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s private residence in Harare’s upscale Hellensville neighborhood on July 6, marking the third such incident targeting the Mnangagwa family in just two weeks. Earlier break-ins had occurred at the home of his son and deputy finance minister, David Mnangagwa, as well as at the office of his nephew Tongai Mnangagwa, who serves as deputy tourism minister.

Witnesses reported three men fleeing from the sprawling property on Wheeleon Road, where a large two-story mansion is still under construction. Police responded with warning shots after the incident occurred shortly after midnight. Authorities suspect the gang intended to steal construction equipment stored on the premises.

Following the escape of the thieves, police recovered an armored cable and a copper pipe discarded in the yard. The residence, a project overseen by the Chinese company Zim Nantong Construction, remains incomplete despite more than five years of construction efforts.

The residence sits on 25,000 square meters of prime urban land and is surrounded by eight cluster houses at various stages of development.
