The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) have cleared fears over a recent suspected break in at the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission Mount Pleasant offices, saying they have not found any evidence of unlawful entry.

In a statement, National Police Spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said their investigations showed it was a broken curtain rail which caused panic.

The investigation was done by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).

“The Zimbabwe Republic Police confirms that a report of a suspected unlawful entry into the premises of the Zimbabwe Anti-Corruption Commission Mt Pleasant offices was made to the police on 15th March 2021. According to investigations conducted by the Criminal Investigations Department who include scene of crime experts, the circumstances and appearance of surroundings suggest that no breaking in occurred. Nothing was stolen or any form of tampering with objects or other items was observed. Indications are that the office curtain rail moved due to wear and tear thereby displacing a ceiling panel,” Assistant Commissioner Nyathi said.

This puts to rest speculation by conspiracy theorists who had already attempted to link the perceived break-in to the work being done by the ZACC, especially around land deals.
