In 2015, Harare Magistrates Courts reportedly faced vandalism by unknown criminals, alongside the discovery of grenades outside a local bank in the central business district.

The break-in caused a halt to court operations on Friday, with Chief Magistrate Mishrod Guvamombe confirming that some court property was stolen. Guvamombe mentioned that the incident has been reported to the police.

While specific details were not provided by Guvamombe, several court officials, preferring anonymity, expressed concerns that ongoing court cases might face challenges due to stolen information.
