Mysterious Fire Raze Down Chaminuka RDC Office
In a suspected case of arson and an attempt to destroy evidence, the Chaminuka Rural District Council head office was razed down to ashes when a mysterious fire was discovered at midnight on Sunday.
Acting chief executive officer Ms Fungisai Chihwayi said when the fire brigade arrived from Harare the fire had already consumed much of the office space.
“Many electrical gadgets and documents were destroyed and walls cracked
“The cause of the fire was never ascertained,” she said.
Authorities have since instituted investigations into the matter,
“Forensic science officials and ZESA engineers had already visited the scene but results of investigations and the monetary value of the loss incurred had not yet been released,” she said.
Sources privy to the developments, however, told Tateguru Tv that it could be a case of arson and an attempt to destroy records as some of the officials are under the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission’s radar.
