Attempted Break-in At Golden Peacock Hotel Where Constantino Chiwenga Is Staying

There was an attempted break-in at the Golden Peacock Hotel where Vice President Constantino Chiwenga is staying in Harare.

The News Hawks reports that Chiwenga has been staying at the hotel since his return from China in November 2019. Chiwenga had spent almost a month in the Asian country receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailment.

After the attempted break-in, The News Hawks report that a fire gutted the hotel last week. The fire left a large section of the hotel’s kitchen reduced to ashes.  A source who spoke to the publication on condition of anonymity gave details of the attempted break-in at the hotel where Constantino Chiwenga is staying. The source said a group of unidentified men who were travelling in a red Toyota Wish had attempted to break into some private rooms at the hotel.

According to the information given by the source, the unidentified individuals gained entry into the Golden Peacock Hotel’s premises through the back and attempted to open doors to the administration rooms. Their efforts were thwarted by an alert guard.

After the incident which lasted less than ten minutes, the source said six hotel workers who had sneaked out of the premises to visit their families were taken in for questioning by members of the Criminal Investigations Department in Marlborough. Ever since Chiwenga checked into the hotel as a guest, Golden Peacock Hotel staff have been barred from leaving the premises or visiting their families.

When contacted for comment, national police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said he was unaware of the attempted break-in at Golden Peacock Hotel. The News Hawks could not reach the hotel’s top management for a comment on the incident as calls to their landlines were not going through.

  1. Hope he is paying all hotel bills for his stay in that hotel. As a poor nation govt tax money can not be used to pay hotel bills for anyone that is unaccepteable. .
