Former first lady Grace Mugabe is seeking an interdict after police tried to search her schools saying they were looking for stolen property.

According to multiple reports police attempted a nightfall raid on former first lady Grace Mugabe’s schools in Mazowe on Thursday saying they were looking for stolen property including generators and transformers, a court has been told.

Zimlive also claims that officers went to Amai Grace Mugabe Junior and Senior Schools on April 15 armed with a search and seizure warrant but were blocked by authorities from the Grace Mugabe Foundation who quickly lodged an urgent High Court application seeking an interdict.

The foundation trustees argued in court papers that the warrant could not be executed because it was defective as it had been issued at night.

They also said officers arrived around nightfall, yet the warrant did not, as required by the law, specifically permit them to conduct their search at night.

The litigants also argued that if allowed, law enforcement agents would invade the privacy of learners and orphans housed at Amai Mugabe School.
