This is what they have done. Thanks to the neighbourhood vadzodzima moyo nema buckets.
We managed to get out.
ZRP later confirmed receiving a report about the incident. Said the police:

While we wait for their findings, lets bear in mind that such acts of violence, intimidation, abuse of the judiciary on dissent is expected in a country led by armed bandits but we’re not giving up.— Sybeth Musengezi (@MusengeziSybeth) October 3, 2022

Meanwhile, Musengezi is expected in court this Monday, 03 October 2022 for the continuation of the case in which he is challenging the legitimacy of President Mnangagwa.
He claims that Mnangagwa’s ascendancy to power in 2017, following the ouster of former leader Robert Mugabe, was unconstitutional therefore must be nullified by the courts
