Members of the Zimbabwe Republic Police in Bulawayo have launched a door to door operation searching for looted goods and asking the owners to produce receipts for the goods failure which they confiscate them and arrest the owners.

Yesterday journalist Zenzele Ndebele confirmed that  Police were going door to door in Nkulumane.

Veteran Broadcaster Ezra Tshisa Sibanda said, "Police operation door to door in progress searching for looted goods in Western Suburbs of Bulawayo. So many arrests of those failing to produce receipts of goods recovered. The sad thing is that those who actually destroyed shops have gone and gotten away with murder. Locals will pay the price and all the blame on them as they face prosecution and possible prison."

Police are reported to have recovered property and groceries worth thousands of dollars in Entumbane suburb that were looted by violent demonstrators.

The recovered goods include stoves, refrigerators, freezers, a plough, shoes, exercise books, alcohol and groceries.

Meanwhile police are continuing the crackdown on civic society leaders and MDC officials who are accused on inciting public violence.

On Friday police abducted the mother of Crisis in Zimbabwe Coalition Rashid Mahiya in an effort to force him to avail himself.

President of the Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe Obert Masaraure was also abducted by soldiers and beaten before being dumped at Harare Central Police station.

The United nations and the European Union have condemned the gross abuse of Human Rights by the state and called for the immediate release of all accused persons who have been arrested over their right to protest.
