The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) has dismissed social media reports claiming that there was an accident at the statue of Mbuya Nehanda in central Harare on Saturday night.
Yesterday social media platforms were awash with pictures of a metal structure that collapsed on vehicles which people purported to be that of the liberation icon.
The Zimbabwe Republic took to twitter to refute the accident claims.
“The ZRP dismisses a social media post alleging that there has been an accident at the Statue of Mbuya Nehanda Corner Julius Nyerere and Samora Machel.
This is false. The police are now conducting investigations so that the law can take its course on those who are peddling fake news. The fake media post is dismissed with the contempt it deserves,” tweeted the ZRP.
