The same people are also understood to have attacked a High Court judge’s house as well. One person has been arrested. Details are still sketchy but sources close to Mpofu said two police details were injured and hospitalised due to the attacks, the first of which was at the minister’s premises in Newlands, Harare.

Indications are several men, using BMW and Toyota Mark II vehicles, gained entry into Mpofu’s premises after duping a police guard into allowing them in. They assaulted the officer before allegedly proceeding to the High Court justice’s house, where they again assaulted a cop stationed there.
