ZESN's Masvingo offices broken into again
Zimbabwe Election Support Network
February 21, 2013

The Zimbabwe Election Support Network (ZESN)'s Masvingo offices were broken into again this morning around 0100hrs. According to the security guard who was present, seven unknown people (3 men and 4 women) who were armed with guns broke in through the window and took with them a PC monitor, a fan, a landline handset, three electricity adapters, a blackberry 8310 and 800 T-shirts. They also took away two top drawers from the Field Officer's desk with all the contents. This follows another break in on Monday 18 February 2013 around 0200hrs at the same offices were 8 boardroom chairs, several T-shirts, a printer and another computer were also taken. Both break-ins were reported to Masvingo Central Police Station.

It is not clear whether these events are related to the raiding of ZESN's head office in Harare that happened on Tuesday 19 February 2013. However, ZESN has serious concerns over this seeming coincidence against the backdrop of the ongoing onslaught on civic society organisations.
