It was neither clear at the time of writing if there were casualties.

The incident happened at number 607-17th Crescent Glen View 1 around 0200 hours today, the state owned ZBC reported saying.

76-year old Mr Jairos Mhike the homeowner and his son Doubt both active members of the ruling Zanu PF party are still in shock following the incident and they suspect the attack is politically motivated.
