According to the publication, the shaft was left open by the Harare City Council, and it was filled with rainwater in which the boys were swimming when tragedy struck.

The incident was confirmed by ZRP National Spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi who told the publication that:

The trio was play­ing in the shaft al­legedly left by Harare City Coun­cil in Kuwadzana 5, in the Pad­docks area. The shaft is filled with wa­ter. Re­ports are that at first they would go in the shaft one at a time. But they de­cided to jump in all of them, that is when they drowned.
